Two Approval Processes for Researchers External to Alverno
The Alverno College IRB welcomes proposals from researchers who are not affiliated with Alverno College (external researchers) to conduct research at Alverno College. All external researchers must obtain both Alverno institutional approval and Alverno IRB approval, which are two separate processes.
Alverno College Institutional Approval
For research conducted on Alverno premises or on an identified population of Alverno students, faculty, or staff, Alverno College is a local IRB and, accordingly, acts as an IRB of record with final approval of the adequacy of the protection of human subjects in the research, unless the Alverno College IRB Chair provides a written letter that officially delegates this responsibility to another IRB. The Alverno IRB has articulated policies that address circumstances when multiple IRB’s have shared jurisdiction for research conducted primarily but not only) beyond Alverno’s premises and communities. These policies may assist a researcher to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort.
