One of my goals for attending the 2016 Advancing Ethical Research Conference (AER16) was to figure out a plan for how to address a growing need on my campus.

In particular, each session provided practical ways to continue my commitment to ethical research and respect for the research within my local context despite a lack of regulation for social, behavioral, and educational research (SBER).
