Letter of Intent
The Letter of Intent (LOI) is designed to communicate the intention of your intended research of the site/organization and the topic that you will be investigating with your selected research site/organization. The LOI will allow for identification and establishment of the professional relationship between you as the researcher and the various principle stakeholders involved.
The following elements required within the LOI template should include the following items:
• Title of proposed research
• Organization identified
• Principal stakeholder acknowledging the intended research and site selection
• Principal stakeholder offering permission to conduct said research on site/organization
• Any additional information or stipulations to the proposed research and site selection
NOTE: The Letter of Intent (LOI) does not substitute or replace the standard Site Permission Letter required within the IRB Application process.
After completing the Letter of Intent, including obtaining the necessary signatures, submit a scanned copy to the Module 5 Letter of Intent Dropbox on the next page.
