Research Participation

Research is defined as “a systematic investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.” This includes activities which are intended to lead to published results. All research with human subjects, funded and unfunded, sponsored and unsponsored, which is carried out by students, faculty, or other University employees, on or off campus, is covered by the UCCS Institutional Review Board (IRB) Policy and Procedures. All research projects require approval by the IRB, prior to data collection. This includes graduate theses and dissertation research, and honors.
