RCR Forums

Beyond the RCR orientations, each PhD student should complete six additional hours of RCR training during his or her first four years of study, and each Master's student should complete two hours of additional training. This requirement can be met by attending RCR Forums (two-hour workshops, GS711 or GS712), which are offered each fall and spring on a wide range of topics. The schedule of RCR Forums organized by the Graduate School will be provided at the beginning of each semester. Students are responsible for checking the schedule, preregistering, and participating in these events to complete their RCR degree requirement. You should register for these RCR Forums via links below, NOT through DukeHub.
