Our Purpose

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) reviews all research with human research participants conducted by faculty, staff and students associated with Shawnee State. The IRB also reviews research involving the institution and its students as research participants.

Our goal is to provide protection for all human research participants.



The full IRB meets the third Monday each month from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. in the Provost's Conference Room. If you would like to submit an application for review, please make sure it is submitted at least five days before the scheduled meeting.
