Research Involving Human Subjects

To protect the rights and privacy of individuals who participate in research studies, DePaul University's Office of Research Protections Institutional Review Board (IRB) has established guidelines and procedures for the protection of human subjects. Students seeking to use human subjects in any aspect of their graduate study should consult with their faculty mentors regarding the university's required procedures pertaining to the protection of such subjects. See the Institutional Review Board site for further information.

In addition, students are asked to complete a series of online learning modules addressing researchers responsibilities for protecting human subjects. The modules are provided by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). See the IRB training section. SNL graduate students are expected to submit the certificate in partial fulfillment of the requirements for Liberal Learning Seminar: LL 425 Exploring Modes and Processes of Systematic Inquiry.
