Welcome to the Office of Research Integrity and Assurance (ORIA) website

The Office of Research Integrity and Assurance (ORIA) promotes ethical and responsible conduct of research through serving as a resource for researchers. The office provides policies, procedures, support, training and advice to aid researchers with compliance related to federal, state, university, and local regulations with regard to research. The office also identifies compliance risks and communicates those risks to the research community. Finally, ORIA monitors and investigates instances of noncompliance to protect the university research reputation.
