Reed Institutional Review Board (IRB) Open Forum on Friday, September 14th

Dear Reed Community Members,
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) would like to invite you to our annual Open Forum on Friday, September 14th. This is an opportunity for Reed students, faculty, and staff to learn about the IRB Review Process. As a friendly reminder, the IRB reviews all research conducted on human subject by community members, including senior thesis projects. Topics covered during the open forum include the new categories of review, our online submission portal, and safety precautions for online data collection.
Date: Friday, September 14
Time: 2:30-3:30 pm
Location: Eliot 314
Applications for all categories of review except Full are accepted on a rolling basis, and the review process normally takes 1-3 weeks. Please build this time into your plans for research.
For thesis research: Please note that advisers must approve proposals before they are
submitted to IRB. Students and faculty should begin working together as soon as possible.
If you cannot attend the Open Forum, you can find useful information on our webpage: . You can also contact us directly or reach out to Kayla Johnston
(, the IRB’s administrative coordinator.
