Faculty advising by appointment

Program Staff has reserved time to meet with faculty and staff researchers on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 1:30 - 4:30 pm, by appointment.

We will not review documents before these meetings. Please come prepared to ask questions and discuss your study plan. We encourage you to bring your submission materials with you so that you have the option of incorporating elements of the discussion into your protocol or related documents during the meeting. For a 30-minute appointment, please complete and submit a meeting request form.

ORI Kids’ Corner

Researchers with IRB-related appointments on Bring Your Kids to Campus Day, or any other day, should feel free to bring their kids with them. We have a kids' corner in the Office of Research Integrity. Faculty and students with kids in tow need not miss out on in-office resources offered by the Human Research Protection Program.

Upon request, Program Staff are available to present on the following topics:

  • History and/or how-to (typically for students)
  • Updates related to revised federal regulations

To request a presentation, please complete and submit a meeting request form.

Workshop or small group training sessions. Upon request by your group of three or more faculty members and held at your location:

  • Navigating iRIS
  • Completing the Protocol Form
  • Drafting Consent Documents

To schedule a workshop or request a group training session, please complete and submit a meeting request form.
