Institutional Review Board

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is tasked with reviewing all research affiliated with Rhodes College that involves work with human participants.  In reviewing these research proposals, our mission is to ensure all steps are taken to protect the rights and welfare of individuals who participate as subjects in human research activities. The Rhodes IRB also seeks to ensure that the College and members of its research community are compliant with the ethical standards and regulations governing human subject research.
