Do I need IRB Approval?
If your research project involves you interacting with living people in any way, you may need IRB approval before you begin. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) of Kenyon College is a committee that reviews research involving human subjects in order to ensure that the rights and welfare of human subjects are protected. Federal law and Kenyon College policy mandate that all biomedical and social/behavioral research involving human subjects must receive IRB approval prior to the start of the research.
