The responsible conduct of research (RCR) training is intended to sensitize students and staff involved in research to a wide range of ethical and professional issues in order to foster integrity and deter scholarly misconduct.
Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training is required of all students and research staff funded by NSF or NIH. All faculty, staff, and students are welcome to participate in the training as well.
The RCR training contains two components and both are required:
- Online curriculum through CITI. See instructions for accessing and completing the CITI RCR content.
- Classroom training. Eight hours of training, offered over two days, is scheduled prior to each semester. Additional sessions may be offered upon request.

All UTSA employees and students have a MyUTSA ID (abc123) and should use Single Sign-On (SSO) to ensure that the course record is linked to your UTSA Training Log.
