Research Ethics Education
Federal regulations require UNM to provide training opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to earn certification in responsible conduct of research (RCR). The AIRE program conducts RCR trainings and certification on a regular basis through a wide variety of options. Many departments offer certification opportunities through research methods classes, new student orientation, and other training opportunities each semester. AIRE also sponsors separate courses, workshop series, and annual symposia that qualify for RCR certification. A number of faculty have chosen to be responsible for their student training using "ethics in context" or "ethics across the curriculum" formats. The intent of these initiatives is to make RCR training attractive and convenient for students and faculty alike in a way that will add to their experience(s) as a researcher.
