Office of Institutional Compliance

The UMass Lowell Office of Institutional Compliance (OIC) works with faculty, staff, and students to ensure compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations related, but not limited, to research with animals, human subjects, stem cells, biohazardous materials, and activities that invoke export controls. Such compliance is critical to the university’s continued ability to conduct a broad range of research. OIC reports to the Office of the Vice Provost for Research.
