Richmond University is committed to encourage Faculty’s pursuit of academic research and professional engagement, which contributes to the mission of the University.
Richmond’s faculty possess a wide array of expertise, and engage in a wide array of research and professional engagement activities across the globe: from academic publications and conference presentations, to exhibitions, performances, active contributions to professional societies and bodies, to volunteering and public service.
Our Research Centres contain groups of faculty and staff conducting research and professional activities in cognate areas, both within and across existing schools and Departments.

The Institute for Corporate Sustainability (ICS)
Led by Richmond Business School, The Institute for Corporate Sustainability (ICS) has been launched to foster and share knowledge on sustainability throughout the University and in the wider community and to contribute to the liberal arts approach of the University as a whole.

Research Ethics Committee
The University Research Ethics Committee oversees the ethical standards of research within the Institution. All Faculty are responsible for consulting the guidelines and policies of their respective professional bodies before conducting research with human participants, or supervising students in research projects.
If you wish to conduct research using human participants that requires ethical approval please take a look at our Ethics Process Flow Chart. This will give you a guide to the requirements for applying for ethical approval, and the forms necessary to begin the process.
Faculty who lead project modules where multiple students are conducting separate research projects that cover a single research area can apply for cohort-wide ethical approval by submitting pro-forma versions of the required documents to the Ethics Committee.
If you have consulted the flow chart, and wish to ask questions about the process, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
