The ability to resolve complex issues that arise in international research is critical to the success of U.S.-trained scientists and engineers. It is also essential to ensuring the integrity of U.S. research with international partners. With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF #1135345), CGS is embarking on a project to develop model approaches to assessing the learning of students who participate in collaborations such as joint and dual degree programs and research collaborations and exchanges.
Through a competitive process, five institutions have been selected to participate in the project as funded research partners:
CGS will work with funded institutions to:
An additional six universities will participate in the project as affiliate partners:
CGS has compiled a list of helpful resources for all institutions seeking to enhance the preparation of graduate students to confront ethical issues in international research. More information about the project goals and background can be found in a CGS Framework Paper written to guide the development of proposals.
