Research Integrity

Drexel University is committed to upholding the highest standards of ethics, honesty and integrity, and to maintaining full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies.

In serving as a resource for Drexel researchers, the Office of Research provides a comprehensive suite of policies and procedures as described in the Research Policies Handbook, as well as support, training and advice to aid researchers with compliance related to federal, state, university and local regulations. Our faculty, professional staff and administrators work to create an environment where research is conducted ethically, responsibly and to the highest standards of integrity.

Compliance Hotline

The compliance hotline is provided by EthicsPoint, an independent service provider used by many colleges and universities across the country. Reports are confidential and, if desired, anonymous.

Responsible Conduct of Research

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) require certain categories of researchers to receive Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training. Trainees and others seeking RCR education may use the Drexel web-based CITI RCR modules to fulfill these requirements. Log-in or sign up for CITI research training by going to Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program, and click on the “New Users Register Here” link on their website. Select “Drexel University” as your Participating Institution from a pull-down menu.
