Institutional Review Board

IRBOklahoma Christian University has established an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to review all proposed research involving human subjects to ensure that the subjects' rights and welfare are adequately protected. The IRB is composed primarily of faculty members from disciplines in which research involving human subjects is integral to that discipline's work, as well as two members from the community whose primary interests are non-scientific. The human subjects review process is administered through the Office of Academic Affairs. Researchers are REQUIRED to comply with the Oklahoma Christian University “Procedures for Review of Human Subjects Research” (below).
