Responsible Conduct of Research

GW encourages all of its faculty and students to be familiar with professional and ethical standards in academic research in general as well as in their chosen fields. Ongoing Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training is a critical part of these efforts. RCR training provides researchers with the tools they need to make ethical decisions and is also required by many federal research sponsors.
