CITI RCR Training Update

To better align with federal requirements and the university’s shared values, all research-eligible faculty, staff, trainees, and students will be required to complete the newly updated Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training every four years beginning Feb. 1, 2024. The newly updated CITI RCR course includes modules that reflect the changes in federal regulations. On Feb. 1, those who took the CITI RCR online course more than four years ago will be notified that their RCR training has expired. They must complete the course again by April 1, 2024, to remain in compliance. Those who completed the course within the past four years will be notified when it is time to take the course again. Individual completions can be checked in the My Records section of the CITI Program website.
