Research Compliance & Administrative Policies

The College has instituted a number of research policies and procedures designed to safeguard the well being of research participants, the safety of our personnel, and the trust placed in us by the public and external funding agencies.

Human Subjects in Research (IRB)

Keene State recognizes the need for investigations in which human beings serve as research subjects. The College is also cognizant of its responsibility for ensuring that the privacy, safety, health and welfare of subjects are adequately protected. An Institutional Review Board (IRB) has been established to review and approve the adequacy of human subject protection.

Financial Conflicts of Interest (FCOI)

Externally sponsored research and educational activities are a vital part of the Keene State College (KSC) mission. As these activities grow in sophistication and complexity they may intersect increasingly with industrial explorations and entrepreneurial ventures, creating for Investigators the potential for conflicting interests.
