SARI (Scholarship and Research Integrity) Program for Management Students

NEW ENROLLMENT PROCESS EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 1, 2021

Penn State University is committed to promoting the responsible conduct of research and scholarship by increasing student awareness of the ethical issues that can arise in the process of writing papers and conducting original research.

In order to satisfy the Scholarship and Research Integrity (SARI) requirement for a Penn State master's degree, all graduate students in the business administration, finance, leadership development, and professional accounting programs are required to participate in five hours of discussion-based activities surrounding topics pertaining to the responsible conduct of research.

Students must be actively enrolled in their first semester or later to be eligible to enroll in SARI. Students must complete the SARI requirement to be eligible to graduate.

SARI Enrollment is currently OPEN. SARI is available in the fall and spring semesters only; it is not offered during the summer semester. We do not accept nor hold advance requests to enroll in SARI. When enrollment is open/available for one of the modules listed below, students who wish to enroll must email [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Name
  • 9-digit Penn State ID number
  • Degree Program
  • Penn State access ID (xyz123)

NOTE: SARI is available in the fall and spring semesters only; it is not offered during the summer semester.
