The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is responsible for Dartmouth's research infrastructure and for providing a central resource to encourage and facilitate scholarship. The office works in partnership with the Academic Deans, the Dean of Graduate Studies, faculty and students in the Arts & Sciences, the Thayer Engineering School, the Tuck Business School, and the Geisel School of Medicine, as well as with Information Technology Services and the Library. Collaborating closely with the Office of Foundation Relations, the office helps identify new opportunities for support, coordinates limited application proposals, and assists faculty in communicating the societal importance of their sponsored activities. The office implements Dartmouth research policies, including conflict of interest in research and scientific misconduct. It also protects the research interests of students, faculty and the College through the oversight of compliance with all relevant local, state and federal regulations.
The Vice Provost for Research is Dartmouth's senior research officer and the primary contact for federal government relations. The Vice Provost is advised by the Council on Sponsored Activities and coordinates the activities of the Office of Sponsored Projects, the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects, the Center for Comparative Medicine and Research, Environmental Health and Safety, and the Office of Outreach.
Other areas overseen by the office include the Electron Microscope Facility, the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P), and the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS).
