The Office of Research provides broad oversight, resources, and education for compliance issues relating to the conduct of research at UCSB. Research activities are governed by a number of regulatory and compliance committees imposed by federal and state laws. Non-compliance can result in penalties to the institution and the individual. It is the responsibility of any member of the UCSB community conducting research to be familiar with university policies as they relate to these research compliance areas.
