Notice to the Research Community
Please be advised that while the moratorium on all new research studies conducted by external researchers will remain in place for the 2014-15 academic year, it will not apply to studies by external researchers partnered with Dawson researchers. External researchers seeking to recruit Dawson students or staff to serve as research participants for their studies are encouraged to collaborate with Dawson researchers on their studies.
Any study by an external researcher that does not include a Dawson principal investigator or a Dawson co-investigator falls under the moratorium and will not be granted institutional approval to proceed at Dawson College. During the period of this moratorium, our resources to support research at the College will be focused on studies involving Dawson College researchers.
We thank external researchers for their interest in conducting research at Dawson. We welcome opportunities to continue forging collaborative research relationships with external researchers as we advance the research agenda at Dawson College.

The Research Ethics Board (REB), mandated by The Board of Governors, supports researchers in their mission to maintain ethical research conduct and instrumentation by ensuring that ethical guidelines derives from the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans and the Dawson College Policy on the Ethical Conduct of Research Involving Humans are respected.
Research ethics review is required for:
- Researchers (both Dawson researchers and researchers from other institutions) who wish to conduct research with human participants (students and/or staff) at Dawson College; and,
- Dawson Researchers, under the auspices of Dawson College, who wish to conduct research with human participants external to the College.
