Update: "A Bottom-Up Approach to Building a Culture of Responsible Research and Practice in STEM”
In September of 2016, CSEP was awarded a three-year $335,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for a project focused on developing ethical cultures in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research.
Over the past year, our research has been developing discipline and laboratory-specific ethical guidelines aimed at providing support in handling ethical issues important to the lab environments in which they work. The goal of this project is to positively influence researchers’ understanding of ethical research and practice issues, enhance their handling of these issues, and promote an ethical culture in their respective labs and across campus.
Update on Research:
This year, we will be working with four different departments - two in science and two in engineering- to pilot this approach.
In October of 2017 we presented our research as part of Stuart School of Business's Friday Research Presentations series.
