All research requests involving human subjects, like a survey of LCC students, must be approved by the Institutional Review Board.
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) has been in place since academic year 2005-06 to help ensure the College's compliance with Policy 320 regarding the Protection of Human Subjects.
The IRB considers requests from faculty, staff and students interested in conducting any research projects involving human subjects.
The IRB may opt to approve or decline the project, or grant an exemption indicating that the nature of the project meets exemption criteria.
Hours: M-TH 9 am - 4 pm, excluding legal holidays and other college closures.
