The applied dissertation is a detailed, accurate, and cohesive account of a scholarly investigation designed to answer a research question directed toward the improvement of practice in education. Research is distinguished by a theory-to-practice model encompassing a diversity of disciplines. Each student is assigned a faculty committee to facilitate and supervise the process.
ADRIANA is an all-encompassing, web-based software application that records all the activities related to the completion of the doctoral dissertation. ADRIANA is used to track doctoral students’ progress through the dissertation process, to provide students with a dissertation support link, and to work as a depository for uploaded documents. Students are required to use ADRIANA for all communications with Dissertation committees.
An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee that reviews and approves research involving human subjects. Our IRB Resources page is designed to provide researchers with the information they need to comply with federal and state regulations for the protection of human subjects in research. Here, you will find information about the IRB process, including how to submit an application, training requirements, and frequently asked questions. You can also download helpful forms and templates.
