Institutional Review Board

If the proposed exit requirement involves human participants, then the project will require review and approval by the WOU Institutional Review Board before any recruitment or research involving human participants may begin.

IRB review and approval is required for all research projects involving human participants, regardless of the level of risk posed to participants.  Students are advised to begin the IRB application process several weeks prior to recruiting human participants for their thesis or field study.

All forms and procedures for the IRB application can be found at
