Workshop Information

Responsible Conduct of Research sessions

The Office of Responsible Conduct of Research offers a variety of workshops to fulfill the requirements outlined in the University SAP 15.99.99.M0.04. The workshops are offered in either in-person or virtual format (via Zoom), but all meet the face-to-face requirement outlined in the SAP.  

Individuals required to complete RCR in-person training (per the University SAP) need to take a total of 4 hours to meet the training requirement; however, you are welcome to attend more than 4 hours.

Please note – the 4 hours must consist of different topics (i.e., you may not sign up for a Data Management session twice to equal 2 hours of your 4-hour requirement).

Non-employees unable to register via the TrainTraq links below should email for registration information
