Office of Research Integrity encourages all researchers to make use of OneDrive for secure storage of data that must be accessed from remote locations.

As a member of the University, you are a part of research integrity team. We depend on your help to maintain the integrity of our research programs and responsible conduct of research. When you have your research reviewed and approved by our committees, you are making a commitment to high integrity research that will be publishable and propel our University forward on the world stage, where we excel at Research for a Reason – to make the world a better place.

As part of our impactful research integrity team, we expect you to maintain your knowledge about research integrity issues by completing the available trainings and sharing these trainings with others in your department and students in your classes. We want to send our students out to the world with strong values and a devotion for responsible conduct of research as they become the next generation of researchers. We also look to you for guidance about topics that you would like more training in.  We strive to bring you quality informative training on topics that you need and in formats that allow you to participate when you have time.  This is our time and we’re determined to help you make the most of it.
