Institutional Review Board

Any research involving human subjects by a member of the campus community (faculty, students, staff) must, by federal and state regulations, be reviewed and approved by a group known as the Institutional Review Board (IRB).  The University’s IRB now has a document which details the policies and procedures that will apply to human subjects research at UMW.  This link will lead you to the official Manual of Policies and Procedures for the Institutional Review Board at the University of Mary Washington.

UMW’s IRB is registered with the Office for Human Research Protections. The IRB number is 00008306 and registration is active until May 13, 2024. UMW’s FWA number is 00017476 and this registration is active until August 31, 2023.
