RCR Requirements for Graduate Students and Graduate Faculty

Effective starting Spring 2013, all graduate students and their faculty advisors must complete RCR training through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) online prior to initiation of research projects for professional papers, theses, and dissertations. The certification of completion for both the student and committee chair must be attached to the prospectus submitted to the Graduate School for theses and dissertations.  Departments/schools are responsible for oversight of documentation of RCR training for professional papers.

Please note that Responsible Conduct of Research training and Human Subject Research training including the Basic/Refresher are different modules and fulfill different requirements. Make sure you are accessing the RCR course when completing the training for this requirement.

RCR Requirements for Graduate Faculty Membership

In addition, faculty are required to submit documentation of completion of RCR training with their next application for full or associate Graduate Faculty Membership.  The revised application form asks for the date of completion and inclusion of the certificate of completion.
