Research Conducted Off-Campus
Research conducted upon private premises other than The University of Texas at Austin requires approval from that site. The site letter must grant permission for the researcher to conduct research at that site. The letter should be formal (use letter head) and contain contact information for the person signing. The letter should be signed by a party responsible for research and/or the conduct of similar activity at the site. For example, school district letters are typically signed by the superintendent for schools in that district. Letters from private institutions should be signed by a director, executive, owner, or other appropriate official.
