About the IRB

Herzing University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) is an administrative body established to provide research support and oversight for the ethical acquisition of knowledge and to protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects. All proposed studies conducted under the auspices of Herzing University or involving Herzing University students, faculty, or other employees must be submitted to and approved by the IRB. The IRB is responsible for the approval of all protocols involving one or more human subjects to ensure compliance with, and fulfillment of: (1) the policies contained in the IRB document entitled “Guidelines for Researchers” (2) the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Human Research Protections’ Institutional Review Board Guidebook (hereafter, HHS OHRP IRB Guidelines); and (3) federal and state regulations related to research with human subjects or studies accessing protected health information.
