AbstractUniversities with central research integrity/ethics offices have a unique opportunity to provide global support to research ethics education. However, the totality of university effort in this area cannot reside in these offices if the institutions aspire to successful programs. As research integrity staff, our mission is to direct and conduct the University’s program for education and training in the responsible conduct of research, coordinating the implementation of this effort with departments and units within the University, with the objective of ensuring that the responsible conduct of research is maintained at a high priority level in all aspects of research activities. My office develops relationships with units, departments and faculty who have a vested interest in the success of research ethics education at the undergraduate through senior faculty levels. I believe that one of the greatest challenges for research integrity/ethics offices is that of approach. The methodology the office adopts must consider staffing levels, client population and institutional culture.
