Role and Purview of the International Research, Programs and Activities Policy Committee
Role: Consultation, Review and Approval
The Vice President for Global Strategy and Vice Provost for International Affairs and the Vice Provost for Research convene the IRPAP Committee that includes representatives from Research Administration, the Offices of the Senior Vice President and General Counsel and International Affairs and select faculty to review and approve international research, programs and activities involving particular compliance or reputational risks, including risks involving intellectual property, data security, research integrity, national security as identified by the U.S. government, and political, civil or human rights. The IRPAP Committee will attempt, in consultation with the university community member proposing the international research, program or activity, to provide a risk mitigation strategy for such situations. There may be rare situations when the institutional concern is insufficiently manageable, and it may be necessary for the IRPAP Committee to disapprove the proposed international research, program or activity.
