The Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education develops and implements campuswide 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.
Research Policy Advisory Committee
The Research Policy Advisory Committee (RPAC) served as a standing committee for this policy development role in the past. At this time, the number and frequency of research policy development needs does not warrant a standing committee; therefore ad hoc committees of the Associate Deans for Research group are established as needed. These ad hoc committees present recommendations for policies or guidance to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, who considers them for adoption in consultation with other campus authorities.
