I hear that the College now requires student researchers to be trained in the Responsible Conduct of Research. Does this mean I have to develop a new course?

No (and note that the requirement originated with the National Science Foundation, not the College). For now, only students participating in NSF-funded research must be trained, and we’re using online training. To learn more about the College’s training plan, click here.

Students who plan to do research that involves human subjects may also have to complete online research training that addresses the ethical issues related to human-subjects research. Please see the IRB website for more information.
