Diverse Hands Coming Together

Responsible Conduct of Research

Teaching, research, and service are the University of Idaho’s basic functions. It is U-Idaho policy that its employees conform to established ethical standards in the conduct of their research and creative activities consistent with the University's position as a land-grant institution and preeminent center for research-oriented graduate programs.
