In an effort to support and encourage research, Southeastern Community College is committed to protecting living subjects from any harm, specifically with regard to safety, informed consent, and confidentiality. The college has established an Institutional Review Board (IRB) which is responsible for ensuring that all living subjects involved in research are treated fairly and ethically. Any proposed research that involves living subjects must be reviewed and approved by the IRB prior to being implemented.
