The NSF Training Requirement on Responsible Conduct

In January 2010, the National Science Foundation (NSF) implemented a requirement that all undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers who work on NSF-funded  research receive training on the responsible conduct of research. Other federal agencies have also implemented such mandates (e.g., National Institute of Health). 

For more information, please see the Macalester Advancement Office's statement about this requirement.
