Dr. Jack Bantle, WSU vice president for research and graduate studies, invites Wright State University faculty to a lunchtime workshop on “Ethical Standards in the Conduct of Research” on Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2010, from 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. in E156 Student Union on the WSU main campus.
Wright State University supports efforts to provide education in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). One component of RCR education is to clearly define “research misconduct” and clarify the process for handling allegations of misconduct in research. This guidance has been incorporated into Wright Way Policy #2101, “Administrative Procedures for Allegations of Research Misconduct.”
It is the policy of Wright State University that the highest ethical standards in the conduct of research be maintained. These standards apply to all members of the university community (faculty, staff, and students) who may be involved in research, scholarship, or creative activities whether supported by internal or external funds.
Pizza and refreshments will be provided to workshop participants. Please RSVP to Jan Power (email@example.com; 775-2425). The deadline for registration is Friday, Jan. 8, 2010.
