All research involving human subjects should be submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for review. The IRB will meet during the second week of each month during Spring semester 2019. Proposals requiring a full board review will be reviewed at the next scheduled meeting if submitted by the end of the prior month. A response to submitted proposals will be sent within a week of the IRB meeting which reviewed the proposal.
A reminder: The IRB does not meet as a full board during June and July. Please plan accordingly and submit any proposals that may require full board review by the end of March, so the proposal may be reviewed at the April IRB meeting and, if revisions are needed, can be resubmitted for review in May.
Proposals should be submitted by emailing the completed Request For Review form and associated documents to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information and the Request For Review form can be found on the IRB website.
All faculty and staff are invited to attend a Green Dot training session on Wednesday, March 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Franz Hall room 120.
This training introduces the basic elements of Green Dot, focusing specifically on the vital role employees play in establishing and reinforcing the culture in which students and colleagues live and work. This program is designed to help employees understand the expanded definition of “bystander” and to equip all University employees to integrate within their current job functions key behaviors that establish two norms:
- Power-based personal violence won’t be tolerated
- Everyone does their part to keep the campus community free from violence and fear of violence.
To register, please email Megan Cohara at email@example.com.
