Responsible Conduct of Research Training

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) involves being aware of and putting into practice the established professional norms and ethical principles of research. Intellectual honesty and responsible conduct is necessary for excellence in research and for maintenance of public trust. More and more, privately and publically funded research institutions see RCR as an essential component of training.

Michigan Tech has developed several training programs to support graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in their professional development and fulfill obligations to sponsors of our research programs.

All graduate students must complete RCR training. For instructions specific to a student's status at Michigan Tech, please see the information below.
