Reminder for instructors with sponsored class projects or capstone projects
In preparation for the 2020 fall semester, all instructors who conduct a sponsored class project or capstone project in conjunction with an outside sponsor or provider of data – even if no money is paid – must take into account the guidance at https://protect.purdue.edu/ when designing class projects.
In addition to those guidelines, instructors must notify the Office of Legal Counsel if any international students on a project team will be participating remotely from an international location. This is an extra step required of the instructor in anticipation that some international students may not be in the United States at the commencement of the fall semester due to COVID-19 and visa and/or travel restrictions, and is required for compliance with export controls, visa programs and federal executive orders.
View the Office of Legal Counsel’s Sponsored Student Class Projects and Capstone Projects page to complete the required steps before the fall semester begins to ensure compliance with University policies and the most efficient processing of requests. Contact the Office of Legal Counsel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
