Research Compliance


CSUMB is committed to the highest standards of integrity in all areas of research and resolves that such activities undertaken by faculty, staff, and students will be conducted in accordance with rigorous ethical principles and in compliance with federal, state, and institutional regulations and policies.

CSUMB promotes a culture of compliance, research integrity, and high quality research within the university community. Staff work with faculty oversight committees and boards to promote ethical and responsible conduct of research, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements relating to research, and develop the institution's policies, procedures, and educational programs required by federal and state regulations governing the conduct of research.

Together with these committees, staff facilitate ethical conduct of research through protocol review; monitoring and reporting; regular meetings for review of proposed and continuing research; training for faculty, staff, and students; and maintaining the institution’s assurances with the appropriate government agencies.
