Research Policies

The Vice President of Reserch and Graduate School develops and implements campus-wide research policy for NMSU. The Office of the Vice President of Research and Graduate School proposes standard policies to guide the campus as it responds to changes in regulations and to assist in the cultivation of successful research administration.

Administrative Rules and Procedures

The ARP’s purpose is to set and communicate the rules by which the Regents overarching policies are to be implemented, in furtherance of the efficient and effective management of the institution, and consistent with principles of shared governance.                                                                     

Export Control

Export Control refers to several federal regulatory programs designed to control the transfer of military and technological commodities to foreign countries. The principal programs include: the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and the Office of Foreign Assets Control Regulations (OFAC).

Responsible Conduct of Research Education

It is expected that the guidance here will be used by all NMSU researchers, whether faculty, staff, graduate students or undergraduate students, whether their research is or is not funded by an outside agency, or whether it is or is not intended for publication.                                                  

NMSU Ethics Courses

This site contains information about university courses including material on ethics, seminars conducted on campus, online training courses, and other sources of authoritative guidance concerning the responsible conduct of research.
