As of January 2010, the National Science Foundation (NSF) required all applicant institutions to have in place, at the time of proposal submission, a plan for providing “appropriate training and oversight in the responsible and ethical conduct of research to undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.”

In support of the NSF requirement, WOU has identified an online training program offered through CITI
