Emphasizing intellectual inquiry and social responsibility in the local and global community, St. Catherine University strives to foster, support, and facilitate research and the dissemination of knowledge. Faculty, staff, students, and cooperative partners engaged in research and scholarship at SCU are part of a community committed to sound, ethical teaching and learning experiences that serve a larger purpose and benefit the health and well-being of society.
The Institutional Review Board is a committee that reviews all research involving human subjects to ensure protection, privacy, autonomy, dignity and informed consent for research participants. Human Subjects protection is a shared responsibility among researchers, advisors, and the University and the IRB has developed a process to assist in achieving the best possible research outcome.
IRB is now being administrated by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) located in Derham Hall 2.
