The Center for SEPP supports ongoing activities to engage faculty and students in its core areas. In addition to talks and workshops, SEPP organizes:
Science Café: informal presentations by UD faculty on their research in science or engineering. These events are free and open to the public, and appetizers and refreshments are served.
RAISE research ethics program: an ongoing educational program with a semester-long seminar on the fundaments of research ethics and the proper conduct of research, including: fabrication and falsification of data, plagiarism, authorship, conflicts of interest, whistleblowing, treatment of experimental subjects, and professional ethical codes. Admission to RAISE is by application only, and RAISE fellows enjoy further suport for activities they undertake throughout the year. All UD graduate students and post-docs are eligible.
Undergraduate Research Ethics Workshop: Each summer undergraduate students who or conducting funded research on campus participate in this workshop, which covers much of the material of RAISE, and features discussion sessions led by RAISE fellows.
CSPO "Science Outside the Lab" Workshop: The Center for SEPP invites interested UD science and engineering graduate students to apply for "Science Outside the Lab” --- a science policy orientation workshop run by Arizona State University's Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes. Accepted students will have a two-week intensive, hands-on immersion workshop in the process and culture of science policy, with housing, in our nation’s capital. SEPP will fund 2-3 UD students who are accepted into the program. The deadline for application is April 1.
