Institutional Review Board

The Augustana Institutional Review Board is a committee reporting to the administration and responsible for approving campus research involving human participants. Federal regulations and Augustana policies require all research involving human participants, with some limited exemptions, to be reviewed and approved by the IRB. This generally includes, for example, surveys of students.

To submit a proposal for review, complete the Request for Review form. For more information, email committee chair Dr. Ann Perreau.
