Compliance Resources

Have questions about export controls (ITAR/EAR), conflicts of interest, research misconduct, plagiarism, IRBs, clinical trials, animal use, or flying UAVs on campus?

The College of Engineering has a compliance liaison, Elizabeth Wagner (734.647.7007,, on hand to help you navigate the compliance processes. She can point you to the right people and resources, and help you as needed along the way.

Conflict of Interest:


Export Controls:

  • Are you considering or starting a project with export control restrictions? Does your project have special IT security requirements? Do you need help with a Technology Control Plan?
  • Are there publication or foreign national restrictions on your research?
    • Give Elizabeth a call at 734.647.7007 or swing by 1008 LEC to learn more about available resources.
    • Email to be provisioned with ITAR-compliant ITS Exchange email, with your uniqname and full name with a cc to your department IT manager. It typically takes 24 to 36 hours to be provisioned.


Responsible Conduct of Research and Scholarship Training:

  • RCRS workshops are designed for Ph.D. students, postdoctoral research fellows, and any Master’s or undergraduates who are NSF/NIH funded. This faculty-led training teaches students and fellows about best research practices and engineering ethics.
