Are you using human participants in a research project?
The Mount Aloysius College IRB reviews all requests to conduct research involving human participants. Students and Faculty/Staff using human participants in their research need to complete an IRB application and submit it to the chair of the IRB.
If the principal investigator is a student, the application must be approved and signed by the applicant's faculty sponsor and the Department Chair. Most students' work will be exempt from IRB review and responsibility falls to the faculty and department chair to ensure appropriate research approaches are used. Nonetheless, the researcher still needs to go through the application process. Students need to allow time for this process when designing their research projects. Exempt applications are typically processed within a week but projects requiring IRB review may take up to a month for review.
IRB documents have been posted to the portal site. Choose "Documents, Forms & Policies", then "College Documents" and then the link to the "Institutional Review Board". If you are asked for a user name and password, use the same one that you use to access your email account.
Please contact your Department Chair or Laura Lansing (IRB Chair) with any questions. Laura's office is in Academic Hall Room 110. Her contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-886-6435
