Determining if a Survey Needs IRB Approval

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a standing committee at Ithaca College that is responsible for reviewing all research and teaching activities conducted by IC faculty, staff, and students that involves the use of human subjects to ensure that these activities minimize the potential for risk. It operates independently from the Office of Institutional Research.

Before beginning a survey research project, please see the Institutional Review Board website to determine if approval is needed from the Board.
