Prepared By: Office of the Associate Provost
Kenyon College requires that research investigators, also known as primary investigators or PIs, must protect the rights, privacy and welfare of individuals recruited for participation in research. The Kenyon College Institutional Review Board (IRB) holds the primary responsibility to protect human subjects involved in scientific, social, behavioral and educational research conducted by departments, programs, and all administrative divisions and organizations affiliated with the college. The jurisdiction of the IRB includes the authority to review, approve, modify or disapprove research protocol applications submitted by faculty, staff and student investigators. The process of review serves to ensure the safe and ethical conduct of research that ultimately will protect the rights and welfare of human subjects in an atmosphere of mutual trust and scientific integrity in the pursuit of knowledge. It also reviews research conducted by outside investigators using Kenyon College students, personnel, or facilities.
