Institutional Review Board

The Office of Sponsored Programs is the administrator of the college's Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB is a faculty committee which reviews and approves all research protocols involving human subjects. If you are planning to use human subjects in your research project, you need to contact the IRB as soon as possible to ensure that the research plan is approved in time for the start of the project. This is particularly important for those who are planning to submit proposals for external funding as many sponsors require IRB approval of the project at the time of the proposal submission.
