Scientific and scholarly misconduct

Dean's Office contact:  Dean Robert Stacey

The University's procedural guidelines addressing allegations of scientific and scholarly misconduct are contained in Executive Order No. 61, which was prepared to comply with federal regulations. The Office of Scholarly Integrity, under the Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School, is responsible for coordinating inquiries and investigations in cooperation with the deans of schools and colleges. Allegations of scientific and/or scholarly misconduct are most frequently reported within a department to the chair, who must transmit them in writing and in strictest confidence directly to the Office of Scholarly Integrity
