Guide for Faculty Sponsors

As a faculty sponsor, your influence with an undergraduate or graduate researcher is invaluable.  The Board asks that you carefully review your student’s research and provide him or her with practical guidance on how to use participants in the study.  Please consider the following as you advise your student:

  • Student research is training research
  • Student research is often limited by time and resources
  • Student researchers may lack experience to handle riskier participants
  • Student researchers need on-site supervision

The Board looks forward to working with you and your student.  We feel that submitting an IRB protocol is an important part of the student’s research experience.  Please contact our staff if you have any questions or concerns.
