New Optional CITI Training: Safe Research Environments – November 2023

The university has made a new optional training available on Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), titled “Safe Research Environments.”

The training includes 2 modules:
  • Preventing and Responding to Harassment and Bullying in Academia

This training is not required for any researchers, but it may be a useful resource for researchers who must have a plan in place for safe and inclusive research for off-campus or off-site research.
