Research Integrity and Assurance

The Office of Research Integrity and Assurance was established as a resource for investigators and the university as a whole to achieve and maintain ethical principles and compliance with federal, state, and university regulations governing research. The office acts as a liaison between the Associate Vice President for the Knowledge Enterprise Development (the Institutional Official designated with oversight of compliance) and the various committees required to monitor and support research activities.

Through key committees, related programs and activities, the Office of Research Integrity and Assurance coordinates the development of, implements and oversees university policies related to research compliance and provides support for the responsible conduct of research.
