“I’ve had the pleasure of working with higher education institutions from the point of facing numerous non-compliance findings which threatened its accreditation all the way to ZERO audit findings, which is a remarkable transformation,” said Clark. “To have the opportunity to serve President Frederick and Howard University as chief compliance officer and help position HU as a model of excellence in academics and operations is the highest honor.
