Baruch Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Office (formerly IRB)

Non-Baruch CUNY Researcher Information

CUNY Researchers in this context are CUNY faculty, staff, and students that are not affiliated with Baruch College, nor collaborating with Baruch investigators but wish to conduct research activities at Baruch College. Documentation of CUNY HRPP/IRB approval must be provided.

Baruch does not allow CUNY researchers to directly recruit/enroll students, faculty or staff for research purposes without a Baruch College Affiliated Sponsor. Sponsors can only be Full-Time Faculty or Staff Members of Baruch College. The use of Baruch College common areas (i.e. hallways, cafeterias, etc.) for research purposes is strictly prohibited.

Those CUNY Researchers that obtain permission from an Baruch College Sponsor to conduct research must obtain permission from the Baruch HRPP Office prior to the initiation of research activities. Projects will be approved on a case-by-case basis as long as it conforms to established administrative guidelines and adheres to CUNY HRPP Policies and Procedures.

The posting of flyers by CUNY Researchers (whether sponsored or not) is allowed. Flyers can be posted on any bulletin boards at Baruch College. Flyers can be dropped off at the Student Life Office located in the Vertical Campus (55 Lexington Ave at 24th St.) in Room 2-210.

If you would like to recruit from additional CUNY campuses, you must contact the HRPP Offices for those campuses prior to the initiation of research activities.
