Research Integrity and Consultation Program
About the Research Integrity and Consulation Program
Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) requires ethical decision-making. Research activities must follow applicable state and federal requirements, as well as Virginia Tech policies and procedures.
The Research Integrity and Consultation Program (RICP) develops and provides a comprehensive program of training experiences and learning opportunities to infuse ethics, and regulatory knowledge across the university.
RICP also provides a research ethics consultation service that helps researchers to identify, analyze and resolve complex questions that arise during the development, conduct, and dissemination of research.
