Ignite Integrity

We have various events during the academic year to increase awareness about integrity. Each fall we have a creativity contest for undergrads, graduate students and post-doctoral trainees and each spring we host a week of events to foster conversation about integrity.

We provide a range of services to develop a collaborative culture for our research community, investigators and participants. We provide assistance on an individual basis or we’ll visit your classroom, lab or department meetings. We also host a film with discussion and speaking engagements annually.
