Summary of the Policy
The University policy is in accordance with the federal government regulations 45 CFR 46 - Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects. The regulation defines research as “systematic investigation, including research, development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalized knowledge.” Projects involving human subjects must receive prior approval from the University’s Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB). In addition, faculty, staff and students having access to information obtained from human subjects must complete CITI training before engaging in such a project.
