Research Ethics and Compliance

Ethics photoAt the University of Dayton, we are committed to the highest standards of ethics and integrity.  The Office for Research is a resource to assist researchers in demonstrating our shared responsibility of ethical conduct and legal compliance to our colleagues, partners, students and the University.

The University of Dayton Commitment to Export Control Compliance also expresses the University's duty to comply with United States export control laws and regulations.
