Training

The 2022-2023 educational outreach on the Responsible Conduct of Research training is provided below.

Education in the responsible conduct of research provides a shared understanding of the rules and ethical norms to perform research.   Researchers have both professional and regulatory-related responsibilities to conducting research responsibly, such as practicing scholarly activities and research with integrity.  RCR training aims to develop commonality in building shared values in order to promote a culture of compliance, and empowerment to continue conversations within the work environment. 

Effective beginning the 2021-2022 RCR training series, faculty engaged in research and other sponsored and unsponsored projects are required to attend, at minimum, two hours of instruction/sessions each fiscal year (October-May).

The training topics will vary from year to year.  Faculty must complete the following core sessions within a five (5) year period.  The required core sessions must be repeated every five years and are denoted below with an *:  1) Overview of Data-Driven Research -or- Overview Scholarly-Driven Research  2) Research Misconduct  3) Foreign Influence and Security  4) Conflict of Interest  5) Rigor and Reproducibility (not required for faculty only involved in unsponsored research).

All research staff and administration are highly encouraged to participate.

Registration is required for each session within 24 hours prior of session.

Five (5) training sessions for 2022-2023 will be in-person at the USA Faculty Club (located at 6350 Fincher Road) and four (4) training sessions will be conducted via the USA Online Canvas platform.
