Texas A&M University-Commerce is committed to high quality research and to providing our faculty, postdocs,staff, graduate and undergraduate students with a conducive environment to conduct research in a responsible manner. As a result, there are various areas of research compliance training that are required for individuals who are involved in research. This requirement is met by successful completion of the online training modules form the Collaborative Institutional Training Institute (CITI) website. Click on the appropriate compliance area below for training information and instructions.

Through the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, various forms of training are available including workshops, seminars, and the recently purchased online training software, the Collaborative Institutional Training Institute (CITI). Faculty, staff, and students who successfully complete the appropriate training module of CITI will meet compliance with Federal regulations. Starting January 1, 2010, all researchers must successfully complete the ethics module, along with all necessary modules based on the nature of the research, in CITI. Once a specific course is completed, each researcher will receive a certificate, which is valid for two years, at which time a refresher course must be taken.
These efforts will help us continue to better meet the Federal compliance requirements, and also uphold the highest standard of integrity and honesty in all aspects of research and scholarship carried out at the university. I wish you continued success in all your research endeavors.
