GRAD 930: Ethics in Research and Scholarship will be offered in the Spring 2018 semester. Faculty, staff, and graduate students who have taken the course in the past have come from a wide variety of disciplines/areas across the campus, and the different perspectives they have brought to the course have enriched their educational experience. Ethical research is a core value at UNH, and this course engages participants in the conversation.

Each summer, on a small island just off New Hampshire's coast, researchers from the Shoals Marine Laboratory work to save and protect threatened and endangered seabirds called terns. Working with the birds is helping the researchers both protect the species and understand more about the health of fisheries in the Gulf of Maine, especially the commercially important herring, a key baitfish for another very important commercial species: lobster.
