IRB Frequently Asked Questions
The IRB honors students' rights of free expression in the production of journalistic and documentary film projects that attempt to inform or entertain audiences or -- in some cases -- advocate certain positions. The questions asked in such projects need not undergo IRB review. Journalists and film-makers are reminded the ethics of informing subjects of publicity about the possible risks of expressing their opinions publicly. The use of signed waivers is encouraged.
If the faculty advisor of a student project is unsure whether the project should be considered "Human Subjects Research," please contact the Chair of the IRB, Dr. Chelsea Greer, email@example.com.
