IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Committee on Federal Research Regulations and Reporting Requirements: A New Framework for Research Universities in the 21st Century

University Research Regulations

The first regional meeting of the Committee on Federal Research Regulations and Reporting Requirements: A New Framework for Research Universities in the 21st Century took place on May 28-29, 2015 at the University of California, San Francisco.

Agenda

NEW!

Submit Comments to the Committee

The committee is conducting a study of federal regulations and reporting requirements with specific attention to those directed at research universities. In conducting its analyses the committee will be aware of (a) the context and intended benefits and circumstances under which a particular regulation was issued and may have evolved, and (b) whether those contexts or circumstances still remain of public concern. The committee will develop a new framework for federal regulation of research universities in the 21st century that addresses the needs of Congress, federal agencies, and the broader public while advancing to the maximum extent feasible the missions of research universities.

Identifying the Culprit - Assessing Eyewitness Identification

On March 16, 2015, Thomas D. Albright, co-chair of the committee that authored the recent CSTL report, Identifying the Culprit: Assessing Eyewitness Identification, participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit. Dr. Albright responded to questions from Reddit users on topics ranging from the CSTL report and the use of eyewitness testimony in court to recent news stories that illustrate how the passage of time and other factors influence recollections of events.
