Policy: 

University resources may not be used to conduct research that bears a security classification from the federal government, such as top secret, secret, or confidential.

Applications for research grants will not be accepted when all or any portion of the intended research bears a security classification from the federal government or if there is a reasonable likelihood that all or any portion of the intended research will bear a federal security classification in the future.

If all or any portion of ongoing research bears a federal security classification, the research will be terminated within a reasonable amount of time. Nothing in this policy precludes the University from seeking to have the security classification removed
