Student Handbook

The Institutional Review Board for Treatment of Human Subjects


As a student on the Emporia State University campus, you may be asked to participate in research projects conducted by faculty or students. Participation in such research projects is on a voluntary basis.

Prior to your involvement in the research, you should be given a consent form briefly outlining the nature of your involvement in the research project. Because your participation is voluntary, you may choose either to participate or not to participate, and the lack of participation does not and shall not result in negative consequences.

If you confront any problems regarding participation in research projects, you are encouraged to contact the Institutional Review Board for Treatment of Human Subjects, located in the Research and Grants Center, 313F Plumb Hall.
