Responsible and Ethical Conduct of Research (RECR)

At Syracuse University, we are committed to fostering a research environment that is guided by the highest standards of research ethics and integrity. Conducting research responsibly is crucial to producing objective and unbiased results and maintaining the public’s trust as stewards of research funds. Several Federal funding agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), require certain individuals participating in projects funded by those agencies to receive training in the Responsible and Ethical Conduct of Research (RECR).

The Office of Research Integrity and Protections (ORIP) coordinates and implements RECR training, with support and assistance of leaders of research in our community.  Online asynchronous, regularly scheduled in person, and in-person/virtual on demand trainings are available to support the community of diverse learners and enhance the learning experience for students, staff, and faculty.
