Export Controls


Research and inquiry into intellectual areas of great promise is one of the most basic obligations the Institution has to its faculty, to its students, and to society at large. Rapid advances in the fields of science and engineering have resulted in a closer association between the university and industry. This close association in rapidly advancing technical fields often involves export controlled information, materials and technology. The institution is fully committed to complying with applicable export control laws. To ensure compliance with these laws, Institution’s projects and programs will be managed in accordance with applicable Federal laws.

The Exports Controls Policy and Frequently Asked Questions can be found by going to the Rowan University Policies Confluence webpage.
