RE: UF Campus Ethics and Responsible Conduct of Research Survey
As part of a UF Graduate School initiative, the NSF-funded I-Cubed program (http://i3.institutes.ufl.edu/) is conducting an environmental scan of ethics and responsible conduct of research (RCR) training for graduate students across the University. Our goal is to build a comprehensive listing of what is currently offered at UF in order to facilitate the creation of programs addressing the specific needs and strengths of the University's academic units. Through this survey, we hope to learn about the academic courses offered for graduate students as well as any other types of ethics or RCR training offered by your department or unit. We need your input in order to ensure that every department is represented in this effort.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that resources on ethics at UF are available through the library's guides at http://guides.uflib.ufl.edu/stemrcr, including case studies, the UF Honor Code, and ethics guides from individual UF societies and departments.
Thank you for taking your time to assist us. Any additional comments you would like to add would be most welcome. Please feel free to elaborate on any question, or to contact Lucas de Biaji Moreira, [log in to unmask], directly with additional questions and comments.
