Training and Workshops

Research Integrity Training

The Office of Undergraduate Research often runs a one-hour training session on research integrity. The training is open and appropriate for both students and faculty. Materials cover the three main categories of unethical research behavior: falsification, fabrication, and plagiarism. Research integrity is a topic relevant to all disciplines, and this highly interactive training session helps students and faculty look for signs of research misconduct and provides strategies to maintain an ethical research and scholarly environment.

Recent offerings: October 30, 12:30-1:30 UC Forum A; October 31, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in UC 128

USD SURE Program Info Sessions

Students who are interested in applying for funding to conduct a 10-week on-campus project during the summer of 2013 should come to one of these information sessions to learn more about the SURE application process. Although the SURE program is a student-oriented program, the office also offers info sessions for faculty who are interested in learning more about serving as a SURE mentor.
