Research Support - Institutional Research Board (IRB) Protection of Human Research Subjects and Their Information

U.S. federal laws require all organizations that conduct human research or serve as sites for human research to be responsible for research oversight and the protection of all human subjects and their private information. This oversight is provided by Herzing University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), which includes membership of both scientific and non-scientific researchers, along with at least one community member.

Herzing University’s IRB is charged with providing oversight and support for all research conducted at the university or under guidance or other support from university students, faculty, and staff; and where human subjects and/or their information is a part of the research protocol. The IRB uses principles established in the Belmont Report, which established ethical guidelines for the protection of human subjects in research studies. The university’s IRB processes have been established in order to protect the rights, privacy, and welfare of all human research subjects and their private information.

By policy, all research, whether or not that research is part of a course or program requirement that involves human subjects or their private information and is conducted at Herzing University, or with University support at any external site, must be submitted to the IRB for approval prior to commencement of any such research. Herzing University’s IRB oversight extends to anyone, regardless of affiliation, who wishes to conduct research at any University location or with any set or subset of Herzing University students, faculty or staff or their private information.

The Herzing University IRB may approve, modify, or discontinue a research protocol because of the risk to human subjects or their information. By providing this support, the IRB also serves to protect the researcher(s) by assuring that the protocol addresses important protections before the research begins as well as continued oversight during the data collection phase of the study. Full information on submitting proposed studies to Herzing University’s IRB may be found on the Herzing University website at
