Resources for Compliancy

The Office of the Vice President for Research has compiled a number of research ethics resources across an array of topics to meet both instructional and compliance needs. Materials include online professional development modules, reading material, training modules and links to federal regulations.

Courses on research ethics

Through a collaboration with other U.S. and international universities, WMU's research office developed these courses available for faculty use. Designed for use as a blended course through online and face-to-face activities, these courses feature case studies, assessments, videos and surveys as well as specific links to relevant Western Michigan University policies. Faculty can access the courses through the WMU Elearning system. Select Self Registration from the top row after logging in.
