University Research Compliance Officer (RCO):

  

The University Research Compliance Officer (RCO) acts to oversee and ensure research compliance with regulations applicable to the use of human and animal subjects, research integrity and ethics, and pre/post award administration of related regulatory obligations.

The RCO oversees development and implementation of policies, procedures, and educational activities which satisfy university policies, state, and federal regulations governing the conduct of research and is responsible for monitoring regulatory updates and making recommendations to the university to ensure compliance.

I welcome your feedback and suggestions and invite you to share any constructive comments you may have regarding policies and processes.

I also encourage anyone with concerns about non-compliance with federal or State regulations or University policy to report those concerns.  All information is treated confidentially.

Reports regarding potential compliance violations are taken seriously and will be thoroughly investigated. Please know, however, that it is not always possible to disclose the outcome of specific investigated complaints.
