Amridge University Institutional Review Board (IRB)
Posted by Carl Byrd on 19 November 2014 09:48 AM

Faculty members or students conducting research in association with Amridge University, including research for dissertations, master’s theses or other studies must have prior approval of the Institutional Review Board (IRB). Students must receive approval from the IRB prior to completion of dissertation Module II or Master’s Thesis Part I.

The purpose of Amridge University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to insure that the use and treatment of human subjects participating in research associated with this University is ethical and in compliance with established standards. Although researchers are ultimately responsible for the ethical treatment of their human subjects, it is the policy of Amridge University that all faculty members conducting research associated with this University involving human subjects must receive approval from the (IRB) before commencing their projects or beginning data collection. This requirement also applies to student researchers who are collecting data under the supervision of a faculty member. Students engaged in projects for theses, dissertations, independent research courses, or faculty-student collaborations which involve human subjects must seek IRB approval through their thesis or dissertation committee chairperson. The IRB may require a background check of the investigator before approving a research plan involving research subjects who are minors.
