All research requests at LCC involving human subjects must be approved by Lower Columbia College's 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 any individual interested in conducting research within the LCC community involving human subjects, including surveys.
