Institutional Review Board

Most IRB processes, guidelines and forms have been revised for the 2015-2016 academic year. Please use the new forms and review the current guidelines before submitting a new IRB proposal or classroom based research project.

The Role of the IRB: Protecting human subjects

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews research projects that involve human subjects to uphold two broad standards: first, that subjects are not placed at undue risk; second, that they give uncoerced, informed consent to their participation.

With representation from a range of disciplines within The College at Brockport and from outside the academic community, the IRB strives to give prompt but individualized attention to human research projects.
