All Graduate College students must receive training in Responsible Conduct of Research. The level of training in Responsible Conduct of Research is dependent upon the degree program. Training for doctoral students must occur prior to enrolling in doctoral dissertation research. RCR training for thesis masters students must occur prior to enrolling in master’s thesis research. For non-thesis master’s students, training must occur prior to approval to take the comprehensive examination. Programs must submit a proposal to the Graduate College Responsible Conduct of Research Committee as to how their students will meet this requirement, and any changes must be approved by the Graduate College RCR Committee.
