Return to Research
Binghamton University’s efforts to continue research, scholarly and creative activities
(RSCA) in line with standards set by New York state and the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention have proven successful. Our Return to Research subcommittees, in consultation
with Environmental Health and Safety experts and the Public Health Advisory Group,
created a set of protocols and expectations that will govern our return to these activities.
Here you'll find guidance documents as well as forms that must be completed before
you return to campus spaces such as laboratories and studios, conduct off-site field
work or modify approved research activities. The current protocols apply to wet and
dry labs, studios and multi-user facilities and certain research with human subjects.
Faculty members who apply to resume research, scholarly and creative activities or
modify currently approved research should have an answer within five days of submitting
an application. These protocols will continue evolve as new information becomes available
and as new issues arise.
