We unify ISU's approach to research compliance.

ROC is your portal to information, forms and processes needed to maintain research compliance.

Research Outreach & Compliance (ROC) is tasked with ensuring 

  • faculty, staff and students have a general awareness of relevant research compliance rules,
  • researchers understand the requirements connected to their specific research activities, and
  • the creation and maintenance of monitoring tools to document ISU’s research compliance. 

ISU Research Policies

Compliance means following the laws, regulations and University Policies that govern our everyday activities as members of the University community.  All accredited universities are required to establish internal oversight to meet the requirements of a variety of external agencies.
