|Research Policy and Research Centers
at the university, apart from that conducted by students in connection
with their academic coursework, is in general intended to lead to
publication in some form so that its results are available to
interested persons everywhere. All university-conducted research must
be available for public scrutiny and use. The university does not
accept grants from or enter into contracts with governmental agencies
or any other sponsors for research projects from which the essential
results may not be made publicly accessible.
projects at the university are carried out by faculty members and
students within the facilities offered by their own departments. For
on-campus research that cannot be conducted in department facilities,
laboratories, or the library, the university has provided a number of
cooperative research centers and bureaus.
Many members of
these organizations are active in graduate instruction. Information
about their programs and activities may be found in Research at Rutgers,
a handbook and bibliography published by the Research Council, the
university agency that sponsors and coordinates faculty research.
