All Kenyon College researchers, research advisers, department/program chairs, administrative department heads and IRB members must complete the appropriate modules. (A few hours of training is not really a lot to ask in exchange for the privilege of using human beings in research.) Chairs and Faculty Advisers who do not complete the course will impede the progress of their students' IRB reviews.
REGARDLESS of funding agency requirements, the Kenyon IRB requires that ALL Kenyon researchers involved in "human subjects" research complete the required learning modules from the on-line CITI Human Subjects Research Educational Program.
The IRB will not process an application until the CITI program has been completed by the P.I., Faculty Advisor, and Chair or Administrative Division Head. CITI will send the IRB Administrator notice of your completion. You should print out a copy of your completion certificate for your own files. You will be asked for your certificate or reference number on the IRB application.
Kenyon offers four distinct research compliance courses through CITI. The Human Subjects Protections curriculum choices are presented in questions 1 and 2 when you are selecting your curriculum.
The learner group choices for the Human Subjects research training include:
Once you have completed a course, you will be able to access and complete other modules that may be of interest. You may be asked to complete additional modules by the IRB depending on subject populations or for international research.
Kenyon College requires re-certification every three (3) years. The CITI Refresher Course will satisfy the re-certification requirement. CITI will email you
Be sure to affiliate with Kenyon College and be sure to register for the appropriate learning group. If you have a question about which group you should choose, call or email Jami Peelle, 740-427-5748.
