CITI Training

The University of Dayton is a member of the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). Through this membership any student, faculty or staff member can take advantage of free online education and training modules in subject protection and research ethics. This is an excellent resource for UD personnel looking for a refresher course or looking to improve their knowledge of research ethics, subject protections, and animal care and use courses.

Many research sponsors require CITI certification when proposed research involves human subjects or animal use.  The University of Dayton requires CITI Training in human research protections for all NON-EXEMPT research projects.
