The Office of Research Administration (ORA) and Sponsored Programs Accounting and Compliance (SPAC) are committed to providing guidance to the university community on federal, state, and university policies and regulations for sponsored research. To enhance this effort, our two offices have combined to offer a series of courses, each intended to give a deeper understanding of a specific aspect of contract and grant administration. For more information on the Certificate Program, go to www.ora.umd.edu/training/certificate-program.
Certificate Program courses may be taken in any order, and you may choose to take as many or as few as you like. Course modules are offered at least once a year. Class 12 - UM Research Policies - covers the following topics:
- Conflict of Interest
- Conflict of Commitment
- Misconduct in Scholarly Work
- Classified and Proprietary Work
