Taking Note

  • The UNH Speakers Bureau is an outreach service made possible by volunteer faculty and staff members who teach, conduct research, study and work at UNH. Through speaking engagements arranged with nonprofits, schools, municipalities, and civic groups throughout the state, these volunteers are able to extend their expertise to thousands of NH citizens each year.

    The Speakers Bureau database currently exceeds 200 active speakers with presentations covering hundreds of topics. As we update our database for the 2014-2015 academic year, please consider volunteering your time and becoming a member of this popular outreach program.

    If you are interested in becoming a speaker or would like additional information, contact the Speakers Bureau at...

  • The UNH Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research (IRB) is piloting weekly “Ask the IRB” sessions during the fall 2013 semester.  One or more IRB members will host the sessions Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in Dimond Library Room 352 (there will be no session on Nov. 27).  

    The IRB invites faculty, staff, and students to meet with members to discuss human subjects issues, such as minimizing risk, protecting confidentiality, or avoiding undue influence and coercion, study design to minimize risk, or to ask questions related to human subjects protections.  In many cases, working through such issues before submitting an application facilitates the IRB review and approval process.  

    Information about the new “Ask the IRB” sessions is available on the IRB’s website at http://www.unh.edu/research/human-subjects as is IRB membership. Contact...
