All faculty who conduct research at La Salle University must submit proposals for review by the IRB according to the federal guidelines. This refers to members of the La Salle Community and those from outside institutions who hope to use La Salle as a research setting and to obtain participants for their investigations. Also, those students and faculty who plan to conduct research for course requirements or who intend to collect data from participants and settings outside La Salle must also apply to the IRB for proposal review.
