Institutional Review Board

All research using human subjects -- even paper-pencil questionnaires and surveys to collect data inside Tarleton -- must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).  Tarleton State University could suffer serious sanctions, including withdrawal of all federal funding, if the appropriate committee approval is not obtained before research begins.

Tarleton's IRB is registered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Completed applications for IRB approval are submitted through the Office of Sponsored Projects.
