CITI Program logo

The CITI Program offers online ethics training programs that are free to Gallaudet faculty, students, and staff. Our policy regarding CITI ethics training is as follows:

“All Principal Investigators (PIs), whether faculty or staff, are required to complete Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program ethical training most appropriate for their type of research. Often the module “Conflict of Interest (COI)” or “Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)” does not suffice. We usually recommend “Social and Behavioral Research (SBR)” training. 

We also recommend that all research members who interact with human participants complete similar types of training. 

For students in a class project or supervised research, the CITI module “students conducting no more than minimal risk research” training is the minimal requirement. Students may be required to complete additional training depending on the type of their involvement and the project itself. 

For thesis or dissertation students, they are considered lead PIs and should complete research training appropriate to their project. Faculty and staff supervisors are also required to complete training as appropriate.”

Gallaudet can verify your certification with the CITI Program only if you are affiliated with the University. 

  • Complete an online CITI course; be sure to affiliate with Gallaudet University during registration.
  • Present a certificate from the CITI Program if you completed training elsewhere.

The CITI Program does not have a time limit. You may take the courses as often as you want, including to refresh your knowledge. Gallaudet requires a passing grade of at least 80 percent for each course.
