Division of Research Integrity & Assurance (DRIA)

The responsible conduct of research (RCR) is a widely-accepted set of ethical and professional standards for conducting research, scholarship and creative work. It is critical to excellence and public trust in research. The UT research community is committed to maintaining the integrity of its research enterprise through the responsible and ethical conduct of all faculty, staff, students and postdoctoral scholars and fellows. RCR instruction and training is fundamental to the preparation and long-term professional development of current and future generations of UT researchers, scholars and creatives.

The Division of Research Integrity and Assurance provides RCR support and training to UT faculty, staff, students and postdoctoral scholars and fellows participating in research, including those supported on sponsored projects.
