The 2018-2019 educational outreach on the Responsible Conduct of Research training is provided below.

Why is RCR Important?

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. 

Participation

Faculty, Postdoctoral Students, and Senior Graduate Students are encouraged to participate.
