Policy & Intake Process
This KEC Research Policy & Code of Ethics outlines the Kahnawà:ke Education Center’s (KEC) policies and explains the principles, protocols and procedures for conducting education research and other collaborative activities in partnership with the KEC. The contents provide a clear and concise guide for the development of respectful and ethical community-based research that benefits all parties interested in engaging in educational research in Kahnawà:ke. The policy includes instructions on how to prepare and complete the research request and ethics application process through the KEC’s Education Research Committee.
Submitting a Request to Collaborate or an Application for Research Ethics Review
Applications to conduct research in partnership with the Kahnawà:ke Education Center are subject to a community ethics review process through the Education Research Committee. In addition, many types of requests to collaborate on projects or school-based activities are also filtered through the Education Research Committee but do not require a full-scale ethics review. For more information, please consult the KEC Research Policy & Code of Ethics. Submissions of requests/applications and any questions may be sent directly to the Education Research Consultant or to the ERC at: email@example.com.
The ERC request intake and ethics application form must be completed and submitted to the Education Research Consultant. For requests to conduct post-secondary research in partnership with the KEC, an additional document must be completed and submitted (appendix A: Post-Sec research).
Feel free to check with the Education Research Consultant if you are unsure if a review is required for your request. Here are some examples of what we review, and what is not in our mandate:
