IRB Center Representatives

The IRB is composed of members representing each of the university's colleges or centers. Members are appointed by the Vice President of Institutional Effectiveness to staggered three year terms based on recommendation by their respective college/center. IRB Members have knowledge of the federal regulations, ethical conduct, and are sensitive to community attitudes. They include:

  • The Chair (selected from the membership from centers/colleges)
  • Vice-Chairs (selected from the membership from centers/colleges)
  • At least one member from each center/college and their appointed alternates

In addition to the voting members, each center/college is requested to have at least one alternate for when the Center Representative is unavailable.

Individuals are encouraged to contact their Center Representative with any questions related to the IRB process. The Principal Investigator submits his or her proposal to the IRB Center Representative. This individual will determine the type of review required for the protocol.

All Area Codes are 954 and all Exchanges are 262 except where noted.
