It's great to be back at USC just as the Trojans are getting ready to play tonight in pursuit of another national championship. It's true in both the undergraduate and the graduate programs that SC is attracting exceptional talent, and producing outstanding research.

The global preeminence that the university has achieved is nowhere more in evidence than here at the Marshall School, where so much cutting-edge work is being done that is benefiting almost every aspect of business, finance, and accounting.

And because your faculty are so well established as leaders in their fields, the Securities and Exchange Commission knew to come here when we needed one of the nation's foremost experts in auditing. To help fix the problems with Sarbanes-Oxley and the audit, I tapped Dr. And she is working closely with the members of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board to replace the existing auditing standard under section with a more workable approach that is top-down, risk-based, and scalable for companies of all sizes.

Of course the agency is delighted that she was also one of the presenters at this Summit. As you know, getting Sarbanes-Oxley implementation right is of critical importance for America's investors, who pay the bills for audits - and who depend on good internal controls to produce reliable financial statements.

When that task is accomplished, and America's leadership in the world's increasingly competitive capital markets is reinforced, our nation will have Dr. Palmrose to thank - and also USC, because the university is making a financial contribution to her service in Washington. Since it is my opportunity to provide the closing remarks, I can say with conviction that this year's program has been every bit as good as the first.

And that's saying quite a lot, with all of the distinguished guests you attracted last year, including Don Nicolaisen, Denny Beresford, and Pat Haden.

And Pat Haden, of course, is in a league of his own. He is USC's Renaissance man, equally accomplished in academics, sports, law, broadcasting, and business. His contributions to the university and to our community have been extraordinary.

For me, it really is a privilege to be back on campus in my current role. In fact, however, this isn't the first time that's happened: As you all remember, that was a classic all-day event that began in the morning with elaborate tailgate parties all around the campus and the Coliseum.

And so she said, "will you sign this for my son? I signed it for her, and she was very excited, and I watched her go back to her group of friends and say - "You'll never believe it!

I just got the autograph of the new Chairman of the Southeastern Conference! By your attendance today at this Corporate Governance Summit, you've identified yourselves as leaders in the effort to reshape the relationship between companies and their shareholders.

Every one of you is destined to play a vital role in the implementation of the SEC's new disclosure initiatives in this area. As you know, we at the SEC that's the Securities and Exchange Commission have been making some dramatic changes in the way that companies disclose information and interact with their shareholders.

These changes are remaking the very nature of communications between companies and investors. Whether in periodic reports, or proxy solicitations, or any other investor communication, our overarching goal is to make disclosure more accessible and more useful to investors.Chapter X.
