Institutional Review Board
What We Do
Welcome to the Shawnee State University
Institutional Review Board (IRB) Website. The purpose of the IRB
is to review all research with human research participants that is
conducted by individuals (faculty, staff, and students) associated with
SSU and research involving the SSU, and students as research participants.
Our goal is to provide protection for all human research participants.
The full IRB meets once a month during the
fall and spring semesters of the academic year, on the third Monday of
each month, usually in the Provost’s Conference Room in 124 Massie Hall.
An additional meeting is scheduled during the summer. If you would
like to submit an application, please make sure that it is submitted at
least seven (7) days before the scheduled meeting.
