Areas of Responsibility

The office serves UMB by providing compliance, education/training, and investigative services to the University community on a variety of topics, including: regulatory research compliance for research involving human subjects; financial conflict of interest in research; research integrity, responsible conduct, and misconduct; Title IX (sex and gender-based discrimination); culture and conflict; gender diversity awareness; other diversity and inclusion areas; civility; regulatory research compliance oversight; equal employment opportunity and affirmative action; suspected child abuse and neglect; and accountability and compliance monitoring. The team receives complaints and conducts investigations related to these categories to ensure the University maintains regulatory compliance and a reputation above reproach.

The office administers the process by which employees and guests of the University request and obtain reasonable accommodations, and it directs the YouthWorks program that provides Baltimore youth with employment opportunities. 

UMB's Reporting Hotline ‌is a single point of entry for reporting concerns in these areas.
