Research Policy Analysis and Coordination
Citizenship and nondiscrimination
The university Nondiscrimination and Affirmative Action Policy states that the university does not discriminate on the basis of citizenship. UC, therefore, generally does not accept public and private sponsors’ restrictions of research based on citizenship.
In select cases, narrow exceptions to this policy may be made:
- Where discrimination on the basis of citizenship is specifically mandated by law (e.g. select agents) and/or allowed by University policy.
- Where there is a compelling public interest in the development of a U.S. workforce (e.g. fellowship and training support for graduate and undergraduate students and early career researchers).
