Research Integrity and Human Subjects Protection
The Coconino Community College (CCC) Research Integrity Committee (RIC) reviews and approvals all research involving human subjects in accord with Federal Regulations 45 CFR 461. RIC also reviews proposed research for appropriate methodology and implementation to ensure research involving CCC is held to professional standards of inquiry.
Any College employee, department, subsidiary, or associated party who wishes to conduct research on behalf of CCC must first communicate its intent to the Research Integrity Committee which operates through the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment for review and coordination. The Research Integrity Committee serving as the protection of human subjects in research, oversees all research conducted by faculty, staff, and students that involves humans as the subjects of a study. This includes (a) research, (b) research-related activities, and (c) training projects that have a research component.
