Questions arise about UNC student-athlete research, privacy concerns

Ethics officers at UNC never approved Mary Willingham’s research into student-athletes because, they wrote, it didn’t seem to meet a threshold that would require approval. But that, according to Daniel K. Nelson, director of UNC’s Office of Human Research Ethics, was because her study would use secondary data analysis and wouldn’t identify students. That changed when she started talking to the media. (Durham Herald-Sun)
