Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Consistent with our core values, Saint Leo University is committed to the safety and protection of those participating in research. The SLU IRB is charged with review and approval of research involving human subjects conducted in association with our campus community. The SLU IRB ensures compliance with the ethical principles of research articulated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

To submit a proposal to the SLU IRB, please review the application submission procedures before completion of the IRB application and appropriate IRB consent form(s).
