Research Policies

The Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education develops and implements campus-wide research policy for UW–Madison.  The impressive size of the UW–Madison research enterprise contributes to the decentralization of many research activities and services. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education proposes standard policies to guide the campus as it responds to changes in regulations and to assist in the cultivation of successful research administration.

This page provides quick access to UW-Madison research compliance, protocol training, and data stewardship policies, including information needed to safely and efficiently close out laboratory activities. Links to additional Safety-related training, managed by Environmental, Health and Safety, Division of Facilities, Planning, and Management, is also provided for your convenience.  To learn more, including links to policies and more information, visit the Research-Policy-Compliance-Responsibility-Matrix- 10-25-23.
