Graduate students and other researchers who are funded by a covered NSF or NIH project must complete eight hours of RCR training. Training requirements will vary depending on the details of the grant and whether the researcher is a student, postdoc, or faculty/staff member.

In 2022, the Research Integrity Initiative launched an ongoing RCR Talks series featuring active researchers here at UT sharing their insight on various research integrity topics. Attending these talks allows those who need RCR credit hours to work towards fulfilling their requirements while learning from and networking with their peers and colleagues. Please follow the link below to view past events and speakers. Upcoming events will be updated continuously.

In Spring 2023 ORSC offered a 2-Day RCR event that allowed researchers to complete eight hours of RCR training in a relatively short period of time. The next 2-Day Workshop will be offered during the Fall 2023 semester.
