Reminder to Faculty, Staff, Students Who Conduct Research

It's the policy of the University of Northern Colorado that research involving human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (see University Regulation 3-8-104). This policy applies to UNC faculty, students and staff. The major responsibility for maintaining ethical standards and protecting human rights rests with individual researchers and research advisors.

The Institutional Review Board offers an added measure of assurance and serves as a local resource for the interpretation of ethical guidelines. You can read more about UNC policy governing research with human beings on the Office of Research website.

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.

Reminder from Purchasing and Contracts about Fiscal Year-End Deadlines

As the end of the current fiscal year approaches, Purchasing and Contracts reminds those responsible for preparing purchase orders and reviewing purchase order encumbrances of the important information on procedures and deadlines that's available on the Purchasing and Contracts website.
