Welcome to the Office of General Counsel
We welcome you to the website of the Office of General Counsel. We hope that you will use the resources that we have compiled here, from the Antioch University Policies to our many Compliance Resources.
As the legal department of Antioch University, we help ensure that we meet our mission by properly navigating the legal, ethical and regulatory environment in which we operate. Our work broadly includes governance and enterprise risk management, ethical and regulatory compliance, a wide array of transactional work, and traditional legal matters such as claims and lawsuits. All our work is undertaken in the best interest of Antioch University and we act in accordance with the ethical and professional standards of the legal profession.
Together, Bill Groves and Rebecca Todd bring nearly 60 years of legal experience to Antioch University. Karen Ely has been with Antioch University for 15 years and spent an additional 15 years as a legal assistant. The three of us look forward to working with you to help identify, prevent, and mitigate legal risks for the University. If you have questions about how the Office of General Counsel operates, please see the FAQs page.
