Research Compliance

One mission of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research at CUNY is to ensure University compliance with federal, state and local regulations and ethical standards with regard to all aspects pertaining to the responsible conduct of research. Vital to our mission of promoting research excellence is the creation and implementation of key University policies. These policies address a wide variety of research issues and regulatory requirements, spanning all areas of research at CUNY. The research compliance division of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research at CUNY provides oversight, administrative support and educational training concerning regulatory and ethical issues related to research.
