Undergraduate Advising Resources
List of your undergraduate advisees: This is a static link; it will be updated periodically. Students who requested that no private information be released will not appear here.
Course Equivalency Guide: This guide shows you how courses from all the Arizona Community College transfer to the University of Arizona.
Advisor Link: Here you can generate student SAPRs and make notes on your advising meetings with your undergraduate advisees. To get access, contact Nancy Rodriguez with your UA Net ID. You will need to go through FERPA training before access is granted.
Course approval process
Accessing your teacher course evaluations
To view your teacher course evaluations, go to http://aer.arizona.edu/FacultyOnline/. You will need your UA Net ID.
Webroster is where you can view class rosters and assign grades. You'll need your UA Net ID.
Getting permission to work with vertebrate animals (IACUC approval)
If you are faculty, a student, or a research assistant involved in any aspect of research or teaching that involves vertebrate animals, you must receive training and certification relevant to working with animals. This includes but is not limited to completing on-lines study modules that introduce relevant Laws and Regulations and Animal Hazards; these two modules must be completed by all involved in research. The need to complete additional modules will depend on the species being studied. All modules are available through the UA IACUC training website (http://www.iacuc.arizona.edu/training/).
Before beginning any research or teaching project that involves vertebrate animals, the principal investigator must submit a description of the research protocol to be used so that it can be reviewed by the University IACUC committee to approve the use of the animals. The first step in this process is to obtain a Protocol Review Form that is available through the UA IACUC forms website (http://www.iacuc.arizona.edu/iacucforms/). A protocol must be submitted for all work involving animals, even if the work involves only observation and no actual animal handling. Projects that do not involve animal handling usually qualify for an "accelerated review"
which is a simplified process. Details on the protocol review process and all other apspects of animal use are available through the UA IACUC website (http://www.iacuc.arizona.edu/).
Although these procedures might seem inconvenient at first, virtually all funding agencies require that research institutions regulate work on animals, ensure that animals are treated humanely, and that all research-related personnel are trained appropriately.
Remember that it is your responsibility to get IACUC approval, and to insure your students go through the appropriate training and be added to your IACUC protocol. Graduate students will not be permitted to graduate if they were required to get IACUC approval and did not.
Getting permission to work with human subjects
A human subject is considered "a living individual about whom an Investigator (whether professional or student) conducting research obtains data through intervention or interaction directly with the individual or with his/her identifiable private information or an individual who is or becomes a participant in research, either as a recipient of the test article or as a control."
If you intend to survey people or attempt to manipulate their behavior experiementally, you MUST receive approval from the Human Subjects Protection Program (http://www.irb.arizona.edu/home). Dr. Randy Gimblett is the School's contact for HSPP, and is available to discuss your research and whether it would require HSPP approval.
Remember that it is your responsibility to get HSPP approval, and to insure your students go through the appropriate training and be added to your HSPPprotocol. Graduate students will not be permitted to graduate if they were required to get HSPPapproval and did not.
