The University of Miami (UM) conducts focused research to advance knowledge, enhance student learning experiences, and build its reputation in the scientific and technical communities while providing positive returns on sponsoring partners’ investments. While UM applies the principles of freedom of inquiry and open exchange of knowledge, we must also be mindful of the federal laws and regulations governing the exchange of research materials and results that are subject to export controls.
On January 3, 2013, the Vice Provost for Research, Dr. John Bixby, issued a memo on the University’s Policy Regarding U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations (PDF). This memo applies to all UM employees. In addition, on February 1, 2014, UM’s Export Compliance Policy (PDF) went into effect and applies to all UM personnel, including administrators, faculty, staff, research associates and fellows, post-doctoral fellows, student employees, students, and volunteers in all units of the University. If you have an export compliance question, or if you need to report an export control compliance issue, please email the export control mailbox at email@example.com.
