Responsible Conduct of Research Training

Two federal agencies — the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health — require Hope College to provide training to undergraduate students engaged in funded research projects on the responsible and ethical conduct of research (RCR). Both agencies consider RCR training critical to the preparation of future scientists and engineers.

RCR training is conducted annually in June and open to all summer research students. Additional training is handled on a department-by-department basis. The RCR plans for each department are detailed below.
