Workshop Date: April 23–24, 2021

Deadline Extended! Proposals Due: Friday, December 4

A Virtual Workshop hosted by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of Texas San-Antonio.

This workshop seeks to share best practices to effectively engage students and faculty working in research labs and lab-based classrooms in building inclusive ethical cultures. This training moves beyond traditional research ethics training into frameworks and approaches to strengthen the ethical culture in research labs.

The two-day workshop will feature a series of short presentations and panel discussions that showcase best practices and approaches to embedding educational interventions in research labs and lab-based courses. These short presentations and panel discussions will be followed by a workshop where effective frameworks for implementing recommendations made by the panelists are discussed, best practices and potential hurdles are shared, and participants are guided through the development of personalized plans for implementing some of these educational interventions in their labs, courses or departments.

We invite presentations from instructors, principal investigators, faculty, and administrators working at two and four-year educational institutions in the STEM fields. Please submit an abstract of up to 500 words. Abstracts for 10-15 minute presentations are due by Friday, December 4. Please send your abstracts and questions about the event to

This workshop will be held virtually and there will be no charge for participation.
