  2. Send the following documents to qc.oie@qc.cuny.edu:

  • your consent document,
  • your data collection tool.

Study Recruitment Review Committee (SRRC) Approval

Requests to recruit QC study participants are reviewed when the researcher has:

  • Submitted the IRB approval or exemption letter
  • Submitted a copy of the participant consent form
  • Completed all information in the request form

When the SRRC has approved a request, the study will be posted to our Opportunities to Participate in Research page and a committee member will notify the requester of approval. The recruitment page is promoted regularly through Queens College newsletters and other announcements that go out to our campus community.

A summary of your research results should be shared with the SRRC (via qc.oie@qc.cuny.edu) and with study participants. We also encourage you to share your results in a way that is accessible to the QC community. By being transparent with study results, the populations we survey can see the value in participating in research.

A Note About Survey Research: Queens College regularly fields its own surveys. So, while we hope to support the research of CUNY faculty, survey fatigue is a real concern, which is why our students are directed to a list of studies with permission to recruit. If you are a QC researcher and your research supports program development or learning assessment, the OIE may be able to help — Learn more here: https://www.qc.cuny.edu/ie/surveys/
