Ethics & Financial Disclosure
All Bellarmine University researchers are required to adhere to the highest ethical standards.
Investigators and participants in federally funded programs must complete the ORI’s online ethics course and provide the Office of Sponsored Projects with completion certificates for sections one through five.
As part of the institution’s commitment to ethics in research, Bellarmine also requires researchers to complete a form disclosing any and all financial interests associated with funded research or any other external agreements that might potential compromise university-based research or represent a conflict of interest.
Bellarmine University endorses and will enforce the Office of Research Integrity’s definition of research misconduct.
