Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The Institutional Review Board works to ensure that the college meets the objectives of protecting people’s privacy, health and safety, and people’s ability to participate voluntarily in human subject research.

Are you planning research or conducting a survey?  Follow STEPS 1-2-3

Step 1:  Complete the Research Notification Form and answer the TWO questions on the form.

Step 2:  If indicated by Step 1, complete an Institutional Review Board Application. (Not all research needs an application, so check Step 1 first, and save yourself some time.)

Step 3:  Once you submit to the IRB (via email or by mail to Kim McKeage, ), you’re done for the moment. The IRB will be in touch with you soon. If you have questions, please email Kim McKeage, Institutional Review Board Chair.
