Town Halls on International Engagement - Video Available

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) recently organized town halls focusing on best practices for international engagement. The events were free and open to U-M faculty and staff.

OVPR posted a webcast of one town hall that faculty and staff can view at their convenience.

Many federal agencies have emphasized the need for increased transparency around international activities that may unduly influence research or the peer-review process.

An international engagement web portal features information and resources to promote successful research engagement with international collaborators in this evolving landscape.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to learn more about best practices to ensure successful international engagement.

In addition to the town halls, U-M will continue to offer assistance to faculty and staff to ensure they are fully aware of their responsibility and obligation to comply with the federal regulations and guidelines, as well as university policies, that govern research and scholarship.
