I. POLICY AND GENERAL STATEMENT
The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (“university”) encourages the development of collaborative relationships among faculty around research and academic interests related to the missions of the university. To that end, the university has developed criteria and procedures for the establishment of research service centers for specific purposes in pursuit of university missions.
Research Service Center (RSC): an organizational unit within an academic department, institute/center, school, or university administration that provides research related services or products to users principally within the university community. An RSC recovers the cost of its operation through charges to its users. The costs of providing the services or products are charged to users on a “rate” basis.
The establishment of RSCs by the university, individual schools, or academic departments, must follow the criteria and procedures set forth on the Office of the Executive Vice President & Chief Academic Officer website.
