and administration have created a new process to deal with research
misconduct if it arises and to ensure the credibility and objectivity
of research activities.
A new UNM
Research Misconduct Policy was approved by the Faculty Senate
in April and passed by the UNM Board of Regents in May.

project, including, but not limited to, faculty, graduate/undergraduate
students, staff, employees, contractors, visiting scholars and
any other member of the Universitys academic community.
The policy and procedures regarding research misconduct are
intended to protect the integrity of the Universitys research
enterprise and not hinder the search for truth or interfere
with the expansion of knowledge.
regulations require educational institutions that receive research
funding from federal agencies to have in place a process to
resolve allegations of research misconduct.
