Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

Impacts ISU Researchers

Research Integrity & Compliance (RIC) provides guidance, answers questions, and determines solutions to issues arising in these areas.

Why RCR? 

  • Ensuring anyone involved in research has an understanding of the areas of RCR is part of how ISU demonstrates that its faculty, staff, and students are qualified to receive funding.  
  • Many funders/sponsors of grants and private partners require us to inform researchers and staff about working with these areas.
  • Contact Dave Harris at or by phone at (208) 282-2592 for more information on RCR requirements and information at ISU. Please use "RCR" in your subject line.
