Institutional Review Board

The use of human subjects in research is extremely important to the development of new knowledge in many areas. However, careful attention must be given to questions of ethics and human dignity whenever human subjects participate in research.

All research involving human subjects (including course projects, capstone projects, master’s theses, and independent student research) must be formally reviewed and approved before any data are collected.

For additional explanation and instructions please view the IRB Presentation: Navigating-the-IRB-2014
