If You Have a Concern
The University does not tolerate retaliation against those who report a compliance concern in good faith.
If you have a question with respect to possible research misconduct there are several places you can go to discuss your concern, such as:
- A faculty member, department Chair, Dean or other official in the relevant department, center or institute
- The Office of Research Compliance & Training
- The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs
- The Ombuds Office
- A Member of the Standing Committee on the Conduct of Research
- The University Compliance Hotline - (866) 627-3768
Some issues may be able to be resolved informally through a Dean or department Chair, or other official in the relevant department, center or institute before any formal allegations of misconduct are made.
An individual may begin a formal misconduct proceeding by submitting a written allegation of research misconduct to the Chair of the Standing Committee or to the Executive Vice President for Research.
The University takes seriously each allegation of research misconduct.
