Institutional Review Board


The links below provide information regarding the use of human subjects in research. Any institution participating in research or sponsored programs must have an approval process in place for the use of human subjects. Dr. Gabriel Adkins ( is currently functioning as chair of the Institutional Review Board.

Please allow up to four weeks for applications to be reviewed. Applications submitted within the first seven days of the month will be reviewed by the end of the month. If the IRB committee has any questions or concerns regarding the proposal, the approval process may take longer than usual.

The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) is an online training module teaching research methods.
Researchers must complete the CITI training course prior to beginning their project. IRB applications will not be reviewed
without including proof of CITI course completion. The CITI training course can be found here:
