The Seattle School supports both Faculty and Students in the expansion of knowledge through original research – giving us more insight into ways we can further our mission in service to God and neighbor. Following are supports and guidance for you as you begin your own research.
Our Writing Center Consultants are a great resource to use at any stage of your research writing process. They are available for free, 45 minute consulting appointments to help with defining your research question, devising a research writing approach, and many other things.
If your research involves interviewing, collecting data, or surveying people, you will need to complete the Human Subjects Review process with The Seattle School’s Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB team, chaired by the Dean of Teaching & Learning, will review your application to ensure that your participants are well informed and all safety measures have been taken to protect their privacy, the data collected, and that the collection is done with the highest levels of integrity.
For more information or to apply for Human Subjects Review, please view the application form.
All persons completing IRB applications must also complete the Certificate of Completion of The Association of Clinical Research Professionals Online Training Program.
