RCR Forums

Beyond the RCR orientations, all graduate students have to complete additional RCR forums. These are more specialized, smaller and interactive opportunitintes for you to enagage with faculty, librarians, staff and other professionals to explore ethical issues and concerns in your scholarship. The minimum requirements are listed below; you are encouraged to take more:

Master's   1 forum
PhD   3 forums, 4 forums for students matricualting in Fall 2020
PhD (School of Medicine)   2 forums, 1 forum for students matricualting in Fall 2020

 

RCR forums are given numbers on your transcript; each is worth two hours of RCR credit toward graduation, although a "zero" credit will appear on your transcript as they are not regular, semester-long classes:
GS711  Graduate School RCR forums (number being phased out)
GS712  Departmental or library RCR forums (number being phased out)
GS714  Academic Integrity & Misconduct 
GS715  Diversity & Inclusion in a Research Environment 
GS716  Mentoring & Wellness
GS717  Best Practices in Responsible Scholarship
BIOTRAIN755 Responsible Scientist TAship (Forum option for SoM)

You should register for these RCR Forums via links below, NOT through DukeHub. Note that currently all RCR forums are being held online via Zoom. Individual forum facilitators will follow up with registered students to provide details about accessing the forum. We strongly suggest you familiarize yourself with Zoom before joining the online forum; we won't be able to provide tech support during the event.
