    It is required that all Colorado State University-Pueblo researchers complete a course on Responsible Conduct of Research annually.

    Our office maintains a subscription with Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) which is dedicated to promoting the public’s trust in the research enterprise by providing high quality, peer-reviewed, web-based educational courses in research, ethics, regulatory oversight, responsible conduct of research, research administration, and other topics pertinent to the interests of member organizations and individual learners.

    These materials are designed and regularly updated to:

    • Enhance the knowledge and professionalism of investigators, staff, and students conducting research in the United States and internationally
    • Educate members, administrators, and leadership of ethics committees that review and oversee research
    • Promote ethical research at organizations through the education of research administrators and organizational leadership

    CSU-Pueblo offers several courses through CITI Program including one in Responsible Conduct of Research.
