In order to satisfy the Scholarship and Research Integrity (SARI) requirement for a Penn State master's degree, all graduate students in the data analytics, engineering management, information science, software engineering, and systems engineering programs are required to participate in five hours of discussion-based activities surrounding topics pertaining to the responsible conduct of research.
In the Penn State Great Valley Engineering and Technology SARI Module, topics pertaining to plagiarism, conflict of interest, research misconduct, and collaboration will be discussed via three case study-based forums. The discussions will take place asynchronously over a two-week period and the module is offered four times per year. Successful completion of the requirements in a single module will satisfy the SARI requirement for a Penn State degree.
Students must be actively enrolled in their first semester or later to be eligible to enroll in SARI. Students must complete the SARI requirement in order to be eligible to graduate.
SARI Enrollment is currently OPEN. Students who wish to enroll in the spring II 2021 schedule must email [email protected] and include the following information:
- Degree Program
- 9-digit Penn State ID number

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