MCU Research and Sponsored Projects: Policy and Procedures


The primary source of policy, procedure, forms, and general information on research and sponsored projects for MCU’s faculty, staff, and students is the internal Research and Sponsored Projects Portal. It can be accessed directly or via the main MCU Business Regulations and Process Directory site. If you do not have access to the internal site, contact MCU’s Director of Research.


The portal is MCU’s main source for information on policies and procedures on:

  • research (general)
  • human subjects research
  • sponsored projects.

It also contains information on the following topics: 

  • data management
  • data sharing requirements and restrictions
  • Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) data and publication posting requirements
  • research resources
  • survey control processes
  • extramural research
  • Qualitative Data Repository (QDR)
  • research misconduct
  • responsible conduct of research (ROR).

The portal is updated regularly to reflect new or updated policies and procedures.
