COVID-19: Research Implications

  • In response to the Governor DeWine’s “stay at home” order to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, Provost Whitehead sent a message to faculty on March 23 to clarify that this order allows them continue “critical research activities” on the BGSU campuses upon approval of their academic dean and the VPREE.
  • Note that all research based solely on the use of databases, archives, and literature searches may be conducted if done so remotely. Face-to-Face interactions with human subjects is not permitted. 
  • For approval for any Faculty Member, staff, or graduate student to conduct any on campus critical research, the PI/Faculty Member should provide the information below to request the initiation of the Critical Research Activities Request Form. An Adobe Sign form will then be created and sent to the PI/Faculty Member for completion and signature. After the PI/Faculty Member has signed, the form will be sent to the college dean for approval. After the college dean has approved, the form will be sent to the Vice President for Research and Economic Engagement for approval.
  • You will receive an email notification once the process has been completed.
