Office of Research Protections Educational Initiatives

The ORP’s Education Program promotes and protects the integrity of research conducted at Penn State by providing education and training to faculty, staff, students, and the community. Our educational initiatives include administering required training for researchers whose research involves animals or human participants, providing training for research administrators, and delivering programs addressing research ethics and the responsible conduct of research (RCR). We offer classes, numerous workshops and seminars, online resources and training, and custom, on-request education programs.
