Welcome to the Office of Research Integrity

The Office of Research Integrity’s (ORI) mission is to foster a high standard of ethical behavior by promoting integrity in research and teaching while ensuring a safe and productive work environment. Under the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and through key committees, ORI serves as the primary resource for faculty, staff, and students to educate, evaluate, and interpret policies regarding research integrity and the responsible conduct of research. Although the burden for ensuring the integrity of the research record lies predominantly with the researchers themselves, we are dedicated to proactive, preventative measures to promote and support integrity, compliance, and accountability in all research areas.
