Institutional Review Board
The mission of the Argosy University Online Institutional Review Board (IRB) is to ensure the ethical treatment of human and animal participants in the conduct of any and all research by any individual affiliated with Argosy University. To that end, the background, purpose, and methodology of studies proposed by AUO doctoral students are reviewed to determine the validity of anticipated results; the possible benefits to participants; the physical, psychological, social, and legal risks to participants; the protection of confidentiality; and the adequacy of documented informed consent. The Argosy University Institutional Review Board Handbook describes procedures and forms required by Argosy University for any research project conducted by employees or students of Argosy University, and for the conduct of research by outside organizations or institutions seeking the involvement of any Argosy University employee or student.
