Simulated Emergency Rescues Scheduled June 7-8

The School of Nursing will host a multisite interdisciplinary emergency rescue simulation activity in collaboration with Aims Community College's emergency medical programs from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. June 7-8. Emergency vehicles and technicians will be working between Brown Hall (and the Zw parking lot) and Gunter Hall.

Website Helps Recruit Research Participants

UNC faculty, staff, and student researchers who need human participants for their research projects can recruit them using the Office of Research's website.

The service is available only to UNC researchers who are conducting investigations previously approved by UNC's Institutional Review Board. Having submitted an IRB application with a pending approval does not constitute eligibility.

Instructions are included on the site for obtaining a copy of your IRB approval through IRB-Net in case you don't have your approval notice.

Researchers seeking participants submit information using the electronic submission form on the new website. Submissions will be reviewed and posted on an approximate monthly basis.

Although the need for participants will be communicated periodically to internal and external audiences, to avoid the disappointment of an inadequate sample size, researchers are advised to be realistic about the numbers of individuals who'll see their entry and choose to volunteer, and are encouraged to seek participants through other sources specified in their IRB protocols.

Off-Campus Life will be offering the First-Time Home Buyers' class on select dates throughout the summer and fall. The two-hour class is open to anyone, but is especially relevant for new hires, recent graduates or those nearing graduation and anyone relocating to northern Colorado.
