The ORCI is looking to help guide university research, in accordance with its mission statement: Creating a culture of ACTIVE, ENGAGED, and ETHICAL research.

The Office of Research Compliance and Integrity (ORCI) at GVSU, an entity of the CENTER FOR SCHOLARLY AND CREATIVE EXCELLENCE, covers a variety of compliance programs. Browse our website or contact our office to find out how the ORCI can help with your research project. We oversee general research practices, such as Responsible Conduct of Research and Laboratory Safety, as well as more specialized areas, such as Human Subjects Research and Animal Care and Use.

Faculty preparing for sabbaticals are encouraged to visit the ORCI sabbatical page for helpful information.
