RIT is affiliated with the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative, or CITI, a subscription service providing research ethics education to members of the research community. The CITI program offers courses in the responsible conduct of research including case studies and video segments. The content is tailored separately for engineers, biomedical investigators, physical sciences research, humanities and social and behavioral sciences research. Additionally, CITI offers modules in history and ethical principles, human subjects, research with animals, records based research and much more.
CITI learning modules can be accessed at http://citiprogram.org . New users can register and choose from a menu of courses. CITI is open to the RIT community and CITI modules may be used in classroom activities. The National Science Foundation requires education in the responsible and ethical conduct of research on activities it funds. More information about RIT's response to this requirement can be found at http://www.rit.edu/research/srs/compliance/rcr/ . Questions about CITI?
