Institutional Review Board
Davenport University’s Institutional Review Board is a committee mandated by Federal laws to protect the rights and welfare of the human subjects participating in research activities. Compliance is monitored by the Office of Human Research Protection of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. DU’s IRB must review and approve all proposed academic research at DU or by DU faculty, staff or students that involve certain criteria to ensure that the research meets these governmental standards for the safety and protection of any human subjects involved in the research.
NOTE: If your research involves surveys, questionnaires, focus-groups, or other methods involving people, you will need to have your study approved by the Davenport University Institutional Review Board (IRB). For more information, click here.
