Institutional Review Board

Nebraska Wesleyan University is committed to protecting the dignity, rights, safety and welfare of all human subjects who participate in research carried out by our students, faculty, and/or staff. The NWU Institutional Review Board (IRB) is the federally recognized body at the university charged with oversight of such research.

The IRB is guided by the ethical principles set forth in the Belmont Report (Ethical Principles and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Human Research Protections. 

Members of the NWU community who are planning to conduct research involving human subjects may access the password protected webpage for IRB information and applications or contact the IRB for further information.
