Reminder to Faculty, Staff, Students Who Conduct Research

It is the policy of the University of Northern Colorado that research involving human subjects must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (see University Regulation 3-8-104). This policy applies to UNC faculty, students and staff. The major responsibility for maintaining ethical standards and protecting human rights rests with individual researchers and research advisors.

The Institutional Review Board offers an added measure of assurance and serves as a local resource for the interpretation of ethical guidelines. You can read more about UNC policy governing research with human beings at http://www.unco.edu/osp/doc/irb/Procedures.pdf.

Pedestrian Safety Reminder

With the start of the new semester and an increased number of pedestrians, dogs, skateboarders, bicyclists, in-line skaters and other forms of transportation on campus, please remember to travel courteously and safely along walkways, streets and parking lots.

This is especially important when traveling near individuals with disabilities, including those who use guide/service dogs, wheelchairs or other adaptive measures for whom well-meaning but over-exuberant dogs, rapidly approaching/overtaking bikes and boards, and other sudden changes in the flow of traffic can be hazardous.

Dog owners are also reminded to pick up after their pets to help make campus a cleaner and safer place.
