Institutional Review Board

An Institutional Review Board ("IRB") is the formal name for a Human Subjects Committee. The IRB is a committee that reviews all proposed Mount Union human subjects research to ensure that the safety and welfare of subjects are protected. All human subjects research requires review and approval by an IRB prior to subject recruitment and data collection and prior to the use of extant data or private information. IRB members have the responsibility for reviewing all research involving human subjects conducted by UMU faculty, students, or staff, regardless of the source of funding.
