In collaboration with the UM Office of Research, the Ethics Programs coordinates instruction in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) at the University. UM’s schools and colleges administer their own RCR programs.

RCR education is required for UM affiliates who are involved in research and supported by NIH or NSF funds. It is also required by some UM colleges/schools and departments for all affiliates who may be involved in research, regardless of their funding source(s). 

RCR CLASSES

RCR education consists of online training via the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) and/or various face-to-face class options. 

See the list of scheduled classes for the next open live session offered by the Ethics Programs.  You can self-register for these classes or make a request through your school or college RCR coordinator.
