RCI is looking to help guide university research, in accordance with its mission statement: Creating a culture of ACTIVE, ENGAGED, and ETHICAL research.

The Office of Research Compliance and Integrity (RCI) at GVSU, an entity of the CENTER FOR SCHOLARLY AND CREATIVE EXCELLENCE covers a variety of programs; find information ranging from general Research Safety and Responsible Conduct of Research to specialized Human Subject or Animal Research.

Lab Safety Training

Safety Training is required for all paid employees working labs, studios, shops, and scientific fieldwork. Students in advanced courses and research staff working independently in labs should also attend training. Training is only required to be taken once, but it never hurts to have a refresher.  Click here for more information.
