CMU Office of Research Integrity and Compliance (ORIC) is here to support research at Carnegie Mellon University and work with researchers to ensure that research is conducted in accordance with federal and state regulations. We strive to foster compliance without impeding the process of research.
Carnegie Mellon University is committed to maintaining the integrity fundamental to research activities through the responsible and ethical conduct of its faculty, staff, and students. The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) is a widely accepted set of ethical principles and professional standards for conducting research in the university community.
CMU is dedicated to the highest quality education for all students and scholars, and RCR instruction is essential to producing the best scientists and researchers for the future. To further this commitment, CMU provides a variety of Responsible Conduct of Research seminars as listed in the RCR core elements below. RCR applies to all fields of research, and attendance is encouraged from all academic and research units. For more information on the RCR topics or a list of upcoming events check out the informational sections on the left.
Carnegie Mellon University promotes the responsible conduct of research through high standards of ethics and accountability in planning, conducting and reporting research. The responsible conduct of research is demonstrated through behavior that meets generally accepted standards. These standards are set forth by state and federal regulations, institutional policies, professional codes of conduct and personal convictions. The building blocks of responsible conduct of research include*:
