Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) exists to monitor research that is conducted at the college, to ensure that college students and personnel are treated with the respect and care as outlined in the American Psychological Association guidelines for research with human subjects, and to maintain the integrity of the institution.

Prior to commencing any type of human subject research (i.e., research involving students, faculty, or staff) as part of your grant evaluation activities, submission and approval of a GRCC IRB application is mandatory.
