The University of Houston is committed to supporting responsible and ethical conduct of research and scholarship among its faculty, staff and students. Responsible conduct of research should foster a climate of intellectual honesty and a commitment to ethical responsibilities by academia. All members of the University community share responsibility for developing and maintaining standards to assure ethical conduct of research and detection of abuse of these standards.
The University of Houston is committed to maintaining a research environment that promotes attention to the highest ethical standards for all sponsored and non-sponsored research. However, awards supported by both the National Science Foundation (NSF) as well as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are required to comply with specific requirements to ensure appropriate training in the responsible conduct of research.
