|Institutional Review Board|
The purpose of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to protect the rights of human subjects in research. This includes making sure that vulnerable populations are protected (i.e., prison inmates, minor children, etc.) and that informed consent is maintained for participation in research. The IRB also monitors non-CAC researchers seeking to conduct research at any of our campuses or learning centers.
Through federal-wide assurance, the President agreed that ALL research and grant activities at Central Arizona College must conform to the Belmont Report and 45 CFR 46, through IRB approval or exemption.
