Have you ever thought about these statements: legislators should have term limits; if we cut waste, fraud and abuse we could balance the federal budget; we spend too much money on foreign aid; the tuition rate at UNI is arbitrary and the administration should do something about it; Iowa is a purple state; there will be an "October surprise" that will determine the winner of the presidential election; and we should get rid of the Electoral College. Do you find yourself agreeing with them?Join us to find out how political science research can help us understand the ideas behind these claims and whether we should agree with them....or not.

This workshop will help participants become acquainted with key ethical issues involved in research and scholarship. It will include presentations and interactive discussion on topics related to research ethics in the U.S. as compared to other countries. We will explore how differences in perceptions of ethical practice and integrity can create misunderstanding and confusion among scholars and students. The session will assist international students in identifying their own cultural norms and expectations, finding resources that they can use to ensure they are adhering to U.S. regulatory and normative requirements, and developing more confidence in navigating any gaps between the two. The session will help to satisfy the requirements for research ethics training for students employed on NSF and NIH projects. This session targets graduate and undergraduate students, but all are welcome to attend. Registration is required.
This workshop is part of a campuswide initiative to create leadership skills in diversity inclusion and community-building through a positive interactive approach. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
