Office of Responsible Research
The TTU Office of Responsible Research works collaboratively with the academic community of Texas Tech to advance our shared responsibilities to promote safe, responsible, and productive research practices and promote dialogue about ethical concerns that arise naturally from creative endeavors.
The Office of Responsible Research incorporates all divisions and committees that support responsible research and compliance at Texas Tech. Our divisions include Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), Financial Disclosure, Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S), Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) and Animal Care Services.
