The Research Administration and Compliance Training (ReACT) Group will foster and support a collaborative and productive dynamic for research administration and compliance at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML). The community will establish a communication structure for UML’s central and divisional research administrators and broader university business and compliance officials to strengthen the university's research infrastructure by discussing solutions, aligning best practices, and refining tools and tactics in the maintenance of UML’s research enterprise. ReACT will create networking opportunities and build a supportive community of knowledgeable research administrators throughout UML.

All ReACT materials are hosted on Microsoft SharePoint. To obtain access to the full ReACT library, please fill out the online Training Registration Form.
