In order to do research (questionnaires, surveys, interviews, etc.) requiring the participation of students, either on and/or off-campus, the researcher (whether student, faculty, administrator, or external organization) must:
- have their survey/instrument approved by the Protection of Human Rights in Research Committee (PHRRC), and
- obtain permission from the Office of the Dean of Student Development (562-903-4871).
Required PHRRC forms and additional policies/procedures are available from the Rosemead School of Psychology -- Rose Hall, receptionist desk.
Research assigned by faculty as part of an undergraduate class curriculum does not require this approval; the faculty in charge is responsible and expected to exercise wise discretion and awareness of such protocols.
