On Dec. 19, 2012, Chancellor Brady approved a name change for the Office of Research Compliance. The office will now operate as the Office of Research Integrity.
The new name better reflects the university’s responsibility to ensure integrity and ethical practice in the conduct of research. While the basic functions of the office will remain the same, the new name more accurately reflects the entire scope of activities for which the office is responsible.
The new Office of Research Integrity (ORI) reinforces the principle that quality research requires adherence to the highest standards of integrity in proposing, conducting and reporting research.
The alteration in name follows several personnel shifts within the office in August 2012. Leadership of the ORI changed hands with the arrival of Interim Director Cristy McGoff and Assistant Director Melissa Beck. Meanwhile, Sherry Ritter continues to provide administrative support to the office.
