November Issue: Research@Lehigh

Welcome to Research@Lehigh, a monthly newsletter from the Office of the Vice Provost for Research featuring research resources and services; important announcements and deadlines; upcoming events, workshops and training; and recent research news.


  • The Office of Research Integrity is excited to share Lehigh's Export Control Compliance Manual (ECM). The ECM assists researchers and administrators in maintaining compliance with export control requirements by 1) identifying impacted policies and procedures, and 2) establishing roles and responsibilities related to export control compliance. The ECM was developed in collaboration with academic units and central offices, and impacted offices will receive training on updated processes. Please visit our website for the complete ECM and more information.

Naomi Coll
Director of Research Policy and Compliance

How would you describe your job to a layperson? 

Universities that receive grants from the federal government have to follow specific regulations. I help Lehigh students, faculty, and staff understand and comply with those regulations.

What are your hobbies? I like to knit, read, cook, exercise, browse thrift and antique stores, and play with my children. 

What is the last book you read? “Unspeakable Acts: True Tales of Crime, Murder, Deceit, and Obsession”. I consume an unhealthy amount of true crime content!
