New NSF Responsible and Ethical Conduct of Research (RECR/RCR) Requirements

Effective July 31, 2023, National Science Foundation (NSF) requires all funding proposal submissions moving forward meet the new Responsible and Ethical Conduct of Research (RECR) requirements to expand research integrity training to include faculty and other senior personnel, in addition to students and postdocs supported by NSF. The university’s CITI RCR courses fulfill this requirement.

Principal Investigators are responsible for ensuring that all required training is complete for personnel supported by their award/grant.

Please see the Office of Research Compliance (ORC) website, or contact, for more details on the new requirements, CITI information, additional training options, and tracking support.
