Resources and Research

Protocols for Research Projects

All external investigators, and internal investigators who do not have a PhD, shall register their intention to conduct research at Niagara College and apply for administrative/institutional consent by submitting the “Form of Intention for Proposed Research”. The proposed research will be reviewed for institutional fit and feasibility through a multi-stages process. If administrative consent is granted, the investigator may then complete the College’s application for ethical review.

As the first step in this process, please complete the Form of Intention for Proposed Research, and submit to Katerina Gonzalez, Director, Planning and Institutional Research, at Thank you.

Form for Intention of Proposed Research

The form is available in both Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat format.

Research Resources

Process Mapping Resources

There are thousands of resources available online that deal with process mapping. You may also find very similar resources under different titles, such as flowcharting or swim lane diagrams, or embedded as part of a broader improvement initiative, such as Lean Management, Six Sigma or Business Process Improvement Methodology (BPM).

Below you will find a few links that may be of interest to further your skills in process mapping.

Work-Integrated Learning

Various Niagara College personnel contributed to the development of the work-integrated learning guide listed below. The guide is a valuable and practical resource for staff and faculty involved with any type of work-integrated learning initiative (e.g. co-op, service learning, internship, applied research) and was designed to support efforts throughout all stages of the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of work-integrated learning experiences.
