Institutional Review Board

IRB at Millersville University

The MU IRB reviews all human subjects research for compliance with Federal regulations. MU has adopted the Belmont Report as its statement of ethical principles. This site provides guidance to anyone planning research involving human subjects under the aegis of MU. 

A Protocol is provided for submission of proposals for IRB approval.

NOTE FOR EDUCATION RESEARCHERS:  Due to the volume of Millersville education students undertaking research in local public schools, principals and school district administrators require the MU IRB provide a full review of all protocols involving public school students. Furthermore, all protocols for school-based research requires a letter of support from the school principal or relevant adminstrator. This letter must accompany the protocol and must be printed on school letterhead.


All applicants for IRB approval are required to complete CITI training in Human Subjects Research
