The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a standing committee established to protect the rights and welfare of the human subjects that participate in research conducted by any person affiliated with the College. The function of this Board is to review research proposals submitted by investigator(s) and ensure that the proposals are in compliance with state and federal regulations (45 CFR Part 46).
The faculty members of this committee are elected by the faculty. The Committee is composed of five faculty-at-large with at least three graduate faculty members, and at least one faculty member representing each of the Schools. The chair will be elected from the graduate faculty members.
The IRB Proposal forms are submitted electronically online. All new submissions and amendments must be submitted via this system as of 9/1/2022.
There are directions within the form itself to help with completion. The form cannot be submitted until it is complete.
