Institutional Review Board

The primary function of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Caldwell University is to protect the rights and welfare of human research participants. It is also the mission of the IRB to determine if human research participants are being treated in an ethical manner including the use of safeguards to protect the confidentiality and anonymity of research participants. All faculty, staff, and students conducting research with human participants must submit either an exempt, expedited, or full committee review application along with all supporting documents to the IRB  (irb@caldwell.edu) . Individuals conducting research at Caldwell University are encouraged to contact the Chair of the IRB (Karla Batres, kbatres@caldwell.edu) or any member of the IRB for guidance on the submission process.
