Consent Templates:

The IRB Consent templates have been updated. New updates include a revised "Consent" section for when the PI is requesting a waiver of documentation of informed consent on the HRPP Initial Application in InfoEd. There is also a new template for Anonymous Survey or Interview research involving adult participants. The new templates may be found on the IRB SharePoint site which can be accessed from the forms link on this website.


Did you know that data collected in Qualtrics is not automatically anonymous? In order to make participant responses in Qualtrics anonymous, the settings in Qualtrics must be changed. How do you do this? See the information on the HRPP Guidance page.

A Note About Submission Deadlines:

Submission deadlines published on the home page of the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) website, apply to studies requiring review at a fully convened IRB meeting. Only complete IRB submissions received by midnight on  deadline date that do not require more than minor editorial changes in order to be ready for IRB review will be added to the next IRB agenda.
