RCR Institute Offers Certification Opportunity Specifically for Students
Graduate Studies coordinates the RCR Institute to promote the Responsible Conduct of Research on Campus. The Institute routinely presents RCR-related workshops on topics such as research misconduct, data management, and intellectual property. Although all faculty, staff, and students are invited to the workshops, students have the opportunity to achieve RCR certification through a combination of workshop attendance and other training opportunities. Participants will be recognized with a certificate and a transcript notation once they have completed the requirements.
