The University recognizes that face-to-face human participant research is a vital part of our research enterprise. As we come out of the provincial lockdown and move back to being led by Ontario’s COVID-19 response framework, the University has created guidelines for human participant face-to-face research that provide equitable access and opportunity for faculty to do research and graduate students to make progress toward degree completion. These guidelines are created with the safety of students, staff, faculty and other members of the community as the number one priority.
The guidelines address on and off campus and out of province research. They are to be used with the University of Guelph's Frameworks for Phasing-In Human Participant Face-to-Face Research at University of Guelph (On Campus, Off Campus) and approved pre-existing Research Management Plans (RMPs).
