Description:
Colorado State University (CSU) has a long-standing reputation for ethical conduct of research in all areas and takes pride in the quality and quantity of research performed on its campuses. A unique component of the support system provided at CSU is a collaborative effort to maximize research integrity support and minimize administrative overload through the Research Integrity & Compliance Review Office (RICRO). RICRO is a service-oriented office under the Office of the Vice-President of Research and provides assistance to researchers, staff, and the faculty in maintaining an ethical environment for activities in the following research and teaching areas: 1. Protection of animal subjects – Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) 2. Protection of human participants – Institutional Review Board (IRB) 3. Protection of animal subjects – Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) 4. Responsible use of biohazardous agents and rDNA – Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) 5. Responsible Conduct of Research – RCR Program 6. Quality Assurance Program including Research Integrity and Regulatory Affairs 7. Post Approval Monitoring 8. Conflict of Interest. By strategically housing these programs in one office, CSU promotes a collaborative and cohesive approach toward protecting the rights and welfare of research subjects while providing guidance on research integrity issues and assisting the research and scholarly community in conducting and promoting responsible and ethical research. This collaboration supports all university regulatory review committees, research integrity programs and quality assurance programs to ensure that research is conducted ethically and in accordance with applicable regulations and guidelines. This session will provide an overview of the programs, educational support, benefits, and challenges of the RICRO approach toward research integrity. Members of the audience are encouraged to ask questions and engage in discussion.
Goals and Target Audience:
Provide an overview of CSU's Research Integrity and Compliance Review Office, including program descriptions for our research compliance areas: Institutional Review Board (IRB); Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC); Institutional Biosafety Committee; and Quality Assurance (QA) program. This session is appropriate for researchers and research administrators who wish to better understand the functions of a University compliance office. It will address common questions and concerns as well as questions from members of the audience.

Start Time:

Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:

Description:
Are you interested in involving undergraduates in your research? Research experience is a great way for students to connect with faculty, engage with curriculum, and explore career and academic opportunities. It is one of those high-impact practices that makes a positive difference in the retention and success of college students. In this session, we will explore different ways to involve undergraduate students in your projects, the role of the Office for Undergraduate Research and Artistry (OURA) in identifying and referring students to you, and what it means to be a good research mentor. This interactive session will ask for your feedback in helping to prepare students for a positive experience and will address questions you may have about resources, time commitment and training.
Goals and Target Audience:
Any faculty, postdocs, and graduate students interested in working with undergraduates in a research environment are welcome. All disciplines are encouraged to attend.

Category:
Research

Session Length:
2 Hours
Room:
308-10 LSC
Description:
Effort must be reported and certified for all individuals who receive salary support from a sponsored project or who expend committed effort on a sponsored project regardless of source of the salary. Success in the effort realm depends on careful attention to important issues throughout the sponsored project lifecycle, and entails much more than simply signing a form. From the initial budget planning through closeout, effort requirements play a vital role.
Goals and Target Audience:
Faculty and staff who work with sponsored projects and effort coordinators (individuals who pass out effort reports from the payroll system).

Symphony -- A Complement to Kuali
Presenters:
Jim Jensen,Jeff Fotsch,Andy Crane
Category:
Research
Date:
2017
Start Time:
10:45 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
312 LSC
Description:
We would like to present Symphony, a complement to Kuali, which provides accurate account balances as well as access to Kuali detail information using any internet capable device. Initially the primary audience was PIs, Researchers, and Research Administrators but, since the launch of the product, we have been able to extend Symphony’s capabilities to include every account type within the University. The interface is extremely intuitive, allowing PIs, Researchers and Administrators access to the information they need without special training. Since the launch of our platform in July 2015, we have been able to extend Symphony’s capabilities through a host of enhancements — including modules for Co-PIs, subaccounts, account delegation, and labor distributions capabilities. We are now building a forecasting tool to further streamline how we do business. While we have shown this to many throughout the University, we thought that having a PDI for those who haven't seen it would make a lot of sense.
Goals and Target Audience:
Financial Managers, PIs, and Department/College Leaders.
