Federal funding agencies continue to express concerns regarding failure to disclose foreign relationships and activities, which could jeopardize funding eligibility. As part of ASU’s effort to educate faculty, staff and students regarding foreign interests and international collaboration, a CITI training module entitled “Undue Foreign Influence: Risks and Mitigations” has been implemented by the University as a resource to provide information on this important topic.
This training provides a high level overview of the impact and concerns foreign influence has on academia. Research Operations leadership highly recommends that you take this training and asks that you encourage your faculty to take it. Individuals who receive funds from an foreign sponsor and those applying for a J1 Visa will be required to complete the training. Training can be accessed through the CITI program at citiprogram.org.
