Leadership and Staff

The Research Conduct and Compliance Office (RCCO)
was established in 1999 to house the institutional
reporting structure of the units responsible for oversight (non-financial) of the University’s research enterprise.
It was designed to improve the quality and reliability of the various oversight operations and to create operational
efficiencies by the sharing of central services for human resources, budget and finance, information systems,
and management.
