Research and Scholarly Integrity Assurance Program
Because The University of Southern Mississippi is committed to the integrity of research and scholarship, all USM graduate students are required to participate in the Research and Scholarly Integrity Assurance Program (or “RCR”), overseen by USM’s Office of Research Integrity.

The Integrity Assurance Program also provides free workshops each semester on topics such as securing research funding, understanding and avoiding plagiarism, and defining and mitigating financial conflicts of interest. A schedule of all upcoming workshops is available here:
