Institutional Review Board

Welcome​​ to The Chicago School of Professional Psychology's Institutional Review Board (IRB) Processing site, the central place for students and faculty conducting research and for faculty supporting student research.

Purpose of IRB

The Institutional Review Board examines all human subjects research proposals developed by students and faculty at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. This review focuses on minimizing risks to participants, ensuring voluntary participation, and protecting participant's privacy and confidentiality. The mission statement of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology's IRB is as follows:

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) will review and certify conformance of applications for research with human participants conducted by The Chicago School of Professional Psychology faculty and students. This review will be conducted to reflect the ethical principles outlined in 45 CFR 46 (the "Common Rule"). The IRB will also review and certify conformance of applications for research involving The Chicago School of Professional Psychology students, staff, and faculty or conducted on university grounds and extensions campuses. The IRB will encourage and foster ethical research at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
