Compliance Policies

Sponsored Programs and Research Administration (SPRA) strives to ensure the university is in compliance with the complex web of regulatory requirements that govern research. We promote an understanding among faculty, students and staff of the requirements they must complete in conducting research.  Please feel free to contact us with questions about any of these policies or regulations. 

Salem State University Compliance Policies:

National Science Foundation (NSF) - The NSF requires that any student working on an NSF grant complete training on Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR). Salem State University has established training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). All students working on an NSF grant must complete the RCR training prior to commencing research.
