Student Research Involving the Use of Human Subjects, Animal Subjects or Hazardous Materials Policy

All student research involving work with human and animal subjects, and any studies involving potentially hazardous materials or procedures carried out under the auspices of Bowdoin College or on Bowdoin College property, must be undertaken under the supervision of a Bowdoin College faculty member or administrator. Supervision is required even when the study is not carried out as a formal independent study or honors research project. The faculty member or administrator is responsible for ensuring that the study follows Bowdoin College policies and federal regulations for the ethical treatment of human and animal subjects and the safe handling and disposal of hazardous materials. Students in violation of this policy are subject to disciplinary action.
