IRB Chair: Dr. Jamie Vaske, Criminal Justice (2016-2021)
The Institutional Review Board meets on the schedule listed below to review protocols requiring full-board review. Protocols that meet the criteria for exempt or expedited review are processed on an on-going basis, and reviewed by one IRB member assigned to your protocol.
The WCU IRB does not meet during the summer months. Expedited and exempt protocols are continually reviewed during the summer, but no full-board reviews occur during the summer months. Please plan accordingly to prevent delays in your research.
If you believe that your protocol may qualify for a full review, be sure to submit your completed application through IRBNet by the corresponding calendar date below:

|October 23||October 9|
|November 20||November 6|
If you have questions about if your protocol will require a full-board review, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Research Administration at 828-227-7212 or firstname.lastname@example.org
