Graduate Program in Energy and Mineral Engineering
Energy and Mineral Engineering Scholarship and Research Integrity (SARI)
What is SARI?
The Scholarship and Research Integrity (SARI) program at Penn State is designed to offer graduate students comprehensive, multilevel training in the responsible conduct of research, in a way that is tailored to address the issues faced by individual disciplines. The program is implemented by PSU colleges and graduate programs in a way that meets the particular needs of students in each unit. In general, SARI programs have two parts: an online program to be completed in the first year of graduate study; to be followed by five hours of discussion-based RCR education prior to degree completion. The SARI Resource Portal provides information, teaching tools, and links to other resources to support SARI program activities, as well as access to an online training program provided by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), which most programs will use for first-year training.
Beginning with the incoming class of 2009, all graduate students at Penn State are required to complete the SARI requirements during their graduate program of study.
Energy and Mineral Engineering's SARI Discussion Sessions (EME 590)
The first Energy and Mineral Engineering (EME) SARI discussion session is held at the department's graduate student orientation. Once each semester, a SARI discussion session is held as part of the department's colloquium (EME 590). The syllabus for EME 590 is given below.
Any undergraduate and post-doctoral researchers must also satisfy SARI training requirements.
