The Research Ethics Program serves as a resource for the campus community to identify and address ethical challenges intrinsic to the conduct of science, engineering, and other academic scholarship.

Case of the Month

The recent March for Science highlighted an increased acceptance in the scientific community of a necessity for science activism. Many in the science community have argued that the March would be a potent expression of broad support among scientists and the general public for science and the scientific method. However, others (e.g., in the New York Times) have made the case that such activism underlines an “us vs. them” narrative, and that it will only further divide an increasingly divided country.
