Non-Affiliated Researcher Information

Non-Affiliated Principal Investigators in this context are not affiliated with Baruch College or CUNY, nor collaborating with Baruch or CUNY investigators but wish to recruit participants for their research from Baruch College.

Baruch does not allow non-affiliated 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.) by non-affiliated investigators for research purposes is strictly prohibited.

Those Non-Affiliated 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 non-affiliated 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.
