Across all disciplines on campus, Earlham students and faculty engage in collaborative and independent research projects that involve humans as subjects. Previous researchers on campus have investigated physiological and behavioral responses after learning about radon risk, collected oral histories about men’s experiences with masculinity, and conducted focus groups and interviews with stakeholders about improving the local farmer’s market.
The responsibility of the members of Earlham’s IRB is to make sure that all research involving human subjects is ethical, whether that research is conducted on our campus or by members of our campus community in locations off campus. Earlham’s values espouse respect for all persons and our IRB is one way we safeguard this value.
