Responsible Conduct of Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Workshop Series
The Graduate School requirement of graduate students for Responsible Conduct of Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity (RCRSCA) education includes (i) on-line training modules (CITI) and (ii) a series of in-person, discussion-based workshops. These workshops allow questions/issues/concerns that may have been raised while completing the required CITI modules to be addressed, and they reinforce important points introduced in the modules. Moreover, these sessions serve to develop a culture of responsible conduct and fulfill the face-to-face hours and content required by federal funding agencies (e.g., NIH and NSF).

Topics for 2019-2020 Face-to-Face RCRSCA Workshops
Discussions will be based around a main presentation given by Dr. Greg Swain, or by other individuals from key units across campus. The purpose for these workshops is to help students better understand about the importance of responsible conduct, learn about proper research and creative activity practices, and connect to important regulatory and information offices across the MSU campus. Each topic, as listed below, is paralleled by a CITI lesson such that a student could pair an online module with by a face-to-face discussion.
