To comply with Federal regulations and SU policies, all SU affiliates must submit any proposal involving human participants to the SU Institutional Review Board (IRB), which will assess and help mitigate physical, psychological, legal, and/or social risks by establishing protections reflecting best practices in human participant research and University guidelines.

 

Spring Quarter Update: In-Person Data Collection Activites May Resume

The Office of the Provost and the SU IRB have recently decided to lift the previous COVID restrictions on in-person data collection. While we ask all researchers to use their best judgment and discretion about spacing, masking, and sanitation, no specific requirements will be placed on research activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the IRB at irb@seattleu.edu or 206-296-2585.
