HERB is an institutional review board (IRB) created by the Psychology Department to review the use of human participants in research at Wagner College. Students and faculty are encouraged to submit their proposals for the use of human participants to the HERB chair for review. HERB welcomes submissions from all members of the Wagner community regardless of academic discipline. However, medical research should be forwarded to the IRB of the appropriate affiliated institution.

HERB is registered with the federal Office of Human Research Protections (Wagner College IRB #1 – HERB). The files below will provide additional information about HERB and the application and review process.
HERB proposals should be submitted to the Social Sciences Office (Parker Hall 211). Incomplete proposals will not be considered.
HERB does not arrange for use of the Psychology Department Participant Pool (open to psychology students and faculty only) but HERB approval is required prior to arranging to use the pool.
