Austin Community College values the acquisition of knowledge through research activities and will consider support of research activities which can be beneficial to the College.
The Research Review Committee will evaluate requests to use Austin Community College students and/or data for research purposes. This committee is chaired by the Associate Vice President of Effectiveness & Accountability and will report to the Academic and Campus Affairs Council.
From time to time, ACC receives requests from researchers to use the College as a basis for their research projects. While these researchers may or may not be persons associated with the College, the research projects they propose are not part of the day-to-day operation of the College. The data to be used may involve ACC students, employees, or organizations.
Although these activities may complement ACC’s need for self-analysis, it is important to have a structured process to evaluate each request and determine if the proposed project:
meets legal guidelines
follows ethical standards
can be accomplished within the constraints of other institutional priorities
is an appropriate activity for the College to support
