Part I: The Important Role the SRO plays (30 minutes)
Part II: Legal and Regulatory Framework (30 minutes)

In 90 minutes, four leaders in the profession will guide you on what you need to know, what you need to be asking and who you need to be talking with. The program can be experienced online through NCURA's online learning platform or you can download the MP4.

"A visionary SRO has an unique opportunity to implement changes that could transform their institution's research enterprise for generations.  However, the SRO also has an immense responsibility for ensuring that the research conducted at their institution is compliant with all legal and regulatory requirements.  This three-part series from NCURA should be required viewing for all SROs, whether new to the role or a bit more seasoned, to help them fully understand how, and the degree to which, their vision for excellence in research depends upon excellence in research administration."
