Institutional Review Board Meeting Dates Announced for 2019-2020


The Institutional Review Board (IRB) will meet on the following dates to review human subjects research proposals that do not qualify for expedited or exempt review:

  • Friday, Sept. 27, 2019
  • Friday, Oct. 25, 2019
  • Friday, Dec. 6, 2019
  • Friday, Jan. 31, 2020
  • Friday, Feb. 28, 2020
  • Friday, March 27, 2020
  • Friday, April 24, 2020

Investigators anticipating that their projects will require full board review should submit their complete proposals to no later than the Monday before the scheduled meeting date.

Investigators who plan to commence their research over Winter Break or over the summer of 2020 are advised to submit their proposals in time to be reviewed at the December or April meetings to avoid delays in approval, as the full board does not meet regularly outside of the Fall and Spring semesters.

Information on submitting proposals can be found on the IRB website at
