RESEARCH COMPLIANCE & SAFETY
All Individuals conducting research must comply with University, State and Federal rules and regulations. One or more of the following may affect the successful completion of your planned research project. Be sure to check with a faculty member in your department/program for discipline-specific compliance policies and procedures. Pay careful attention to all compliance requirements. Please note that any compliance issue pertaining to your project must be addressed prior to conducting your research.
Human Subjects Research
All research projects involving human subjects conducted by University faculty, staff and students or done under the sponsorship or auspices of the institution must be reviewed and approved by the Human Subjects Research Review Committee (HSRRC). This includes research involving subjects from outside the university and research which is not funded. For more information and to begin the approval process, click here.
