Research Integrity

A strong commitment to research integrity is at the very core of Clemson University’s highly-regarded research program. The term research integrity includes not only the ideals of honesty, fairness, but also compliance with research guidelines and policies.

Clemson University RCR Training Program

Recent changes in federal requirements require Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training for scholars funded by NSF, USDA and NIH.  The CU RCR training program includes both interdisciplinary general and program-specific RCR content.  The phased program is intended to provide quality training experiences while offering flexibility for the learner.

Please visit the CU RCR training program page for more information.

A table outlining the requirements can be accessed here.

Questions regarding these training requirements should be directed to your grant coordinator or to Tracy Arwood, Research Integrity Officer.
