Responsible Conduct of Research Training

All students and faculty principal investigators (PI) and co-investigators, whose research is being funded by NSF, NIH, or USDA, are required to complete the Responsible Conduct of Research Training (RCR) prior to submitting application to the Human Subjects Review Committee (IRB). Andrews University Compliance Office is currently offering the training in conjunction with the National Center for Professional and Research Ethics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 


The training is currently required for Honors students and students involved with NIH and NSF funded research. This requirement is also applicable to students receiving support through internal Faculty Research Grants, Undergraduate Research Scholar awards, and Graduate Research Assistantships, as well as externally funded research. 


Registering for and Completing the Responsible Conduct of Research Training

To complete the training, our office will have to register you.  However, you will need to email to us the following information at irb@andrews.edu:


                    1.  Your first name, last name, and Andrews University email address.


Upon the receipt of your information, we will proceed to secure a NetID, and register you for the training.  Submit your required training information early enough since part of the registration process is not controlled at AU.
