Research Participation Requests from Outside Organizations
Outside organizations such as other institutions of higher education and individual researchers often collaborate with San Jacinto College (SJC) on academic research studies. San Jacinto College students occasionally are offered these research participation opportunities by SJC faculty or staff.
Outside institutions and researchers who are interested in collaborating with our students or employees for research purposes are required to contact the San Jacinto College Institutional Review Board at www.sanjac.edu/irb, meet all required criteria of the review board, and obtain the prior approval of the San Jacinto College Institutional Review Board. No individual or organization outside of the College may conduct research involving our students, employees, or campus visitors without prior approval of the San Jacinto College Institutional Review Board.
Faculty-assigned surveys or polls to be conducted within the classroom are exempt from this procedure. Additionally, nothing in this procedure precludes individuals from presenting petitions or surveys in outdoor common areas on campus as provided in College Procedure VII.7003.A.a.
