Our Mission


The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) promotes a culture of compliance, research integrity, and high quality research within the University community.

Key to our mission of promoting research excellence is the creation and implementation of targeted educational programs. These programs have been developed to address the needs of those just entering the world of research, like undergraduate and graduate students, to our most seasoned investigators. The ORI is responsible for monitoring regulatory changes and recommending institutional responses to ensure compliance, and oversees the development and implementation of policies, procedures, programs and educational activities which satisfy federal, state and institutional regulations governing the research ethics and the responsible conduct of research.
