Are you conducting interviews or collecting data from people?
If you plan to conduct interviews or collect data using a survey, check with CU's Office of Research to determine if your study requires review prior to data collection.
- Get in touch with the Office of Research several weeks in advance of when you plan to collect data
- Email OraLee Branch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and give a brief description of your research project
- Include questions you intend to ask your interviewees or subjects
- Let her know you are an undergraduate student
- Review information at the Institutional Review Board site to learn more about the requirements for approval
- The mode you use to collect data (e.g. in person v. over the phone) does not exempt you from needing to acquire permission to conduct your research
- The university has web survey software available to you
- Talk with Sonja Baumeister (email@example.com) in the CAS office about this option
