Staff Shared Governance Groups Offer Variety of Opportunities

UNC's shared governance groups for staff - the Professional Administrative Staff Council and the Classified Staff Council - represent the interests of their constituencies in a variety of ways, including advising UNC's Board of Trustees and administration, providing numerous opportunities for staff involvement in university activities and initiatives, and offering scholarship and professional development opportunities for staff that are supported by a variety of fundraising efforts. To find out more about the councils, all that they do and how you can be involved or support them, visit the PASC website or the CSC website.

Marketing and Promotional Materials on Campus

Recently there has been an increase in both registered UNC groups and departments as well as unaffiliated, external groups distributing materials on campus billboards, in lecture halls, and on UNC department bulletin boards. This is just a reminder to follow UNC's policy, which can be found here.

This policy seeks to keep UNC classrooms and other facilities free of trash and other debris while providing a opportunities to provide information regarding UNC and community events.

If you see materials that appear to be posted or distributed outside of the UNC policy or if these materials are inappropriate or harmful in nature, please contact the building manager or departmental owner of the space or Dean of Students Office to file a complaint, or report a concern.

Free Online Training Available to UNC Researchers

UNC faculty, staff and students can take advantage of free online training about human subject research, UNC's Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), conflicts of interest, good clinical practices, health information privacy and security, export control, and laboratory animal welfare via the Office of Research website.

Institutional Review Board training is required for instructors supervising classroom research as part of the omnibus IRB application process, externally funded investigators, and members of the IRB. Training is also recommended for all who are conducting research with human subjects.

Completion of training modules in the Responsible Conduct of Research and in conflicts of interest is required by several external funding agencies for those working on grant-funded projects.

For additional information, including instructions on how to register and select Collaborative Institution Training Initiative (CITI) educational modules, visit the Office of Research website.
