Cooperating Schools Program

The University of Iowa Cooperating Schools Program (CSP) is a university-wide service to facilitate the placement of research projects conducted by faculty, staff, and students in public schools throughout Iowa.  The purpose of the CSP is to provide information to assist researchers with obtaining permission to conduct research in Iowa schools.  This program was instituted at the request of school administrators charged with the responsibility of approving research projects in their schools.  

It is not a requirement to obtain Cooperating Schools Program approval prior to review and final approval by the appropriate IRB.
