RCR Workshops at FAU

The Graduate College, in partnership with the Division of Research, offers a series of workshops each fall and spring semester on the Responsible Conduct of Research for all currently-enrolled graduate students at FAU.

To obtain the most benefit from the RCR workshops, students should complete CITI online training prior to attending RCR workshops. Please note that CITI training need be completed only once and covers general RCR education. In conjunction with CITI training, FAU’s RCR workshops offer more specific instruction and satisfy NSF and NIH requirements.

For questions about the RCR workshops at FAU, please contact Beth Barak, Division of Research, at bbarak@fau.edu or 561.297.2311.
