The Office of Research & Compliance at the University of New Mexico provides independent oversight of UNM's research compliance programs, activities and processes. The Executive Director of Research & Compliance, who reports to the Vice President for Research, coordinates and monitors research compliance programs on Main Campus to ensure that UNM is compliant with federal, state and local laws and regulations as well as UNM policies.
