Ethics Point Policy

Research on Human Subjects: All research involving human participants that is conducted by Alvernia faculty members or students must be reviewed by the Institutional Review Board for Research with Human Subjects (the IRB). The primary purpose of the committee is to assure the protection of the rights and welfare of human research subjects according to federal and state regulations and guidelines. The committee will review institutional or university faculty research proposals which would involve the use of human subjects and assure their compliance with appropriate protocols. No matter how seemingly benign, the proposed research project must be reviewed by the IRB before relevant work commences. The IRB is available to consult with faculty, staff, or students in the early stages of project development regarding the review process and categories of review.
