Meeting Schedule

KSU's IRB meets the third Tuesday of each month from 12:30-1:45 p.m., with the exception of December, May, June and July.  NOTE: Since there is no December meeting and due to the Thanksgiving holiday, November’s meeting date has been changed to the 4th Tuesday of the month.

Close accessible parking for non-KSU members will be available in KSU’s Visitor Parking Lot V2.  A coupon code will be provided prior to the meeting that will cover the cost.  If preferred, non-KSU members will have the ability to conference call or video conference in to the meeting.

Proposals to be reviewed by the full board must be received at least one month in advance of the meeting at which a review is to be conducted. Send electronic copies of proposals and all related files to irb@kennesaw.edu.

Research involving more than minimal risk, or involving the use of research participants who are under 18 years of age, prisoners, or who for some reason are unable to give informed consent for their participation, will generally require several weeks for approval. Many low-risk proposals qualify for expedited review and do not require review at a regular IRB meeting. These types of proposals are reviewed throughout the month.

Please note that the board does not meet during the months of May, June, July, or December. Proposals requiring full board review that are submitted during these months may require additional time for review and approval. Also, be aware that reviews are not conducted when Kennesaw State University is closed for business. Researchers should ensure that proposed studies are submitted well in advance of the date that the research project is scheduled to begin to allow for initial review, submission of possible revisions, and final approval.
