Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

Impacts ISU Researchers

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

Why RCR?

  • The majority of funders/sponsors of grants and private partners require us to inform researchers and staff about working within these areas.  
  • 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.  
  • Contact Deb Easterly at or by phone at (208) 282-2618 for more information on RCR requirements and information at ISU. Please use "RCR" in your subject line.
