The National Research Act, passed by Congress in 1974, directs all institutions receiving federal support for research and evaluation studies, including universities, public schools, hospitals and nonprofit organizations, to establish Institutional Review Boards (IRBs).
The purpose of the IRB is to review research requests conducted by Wake Tech employees or researchers from other institutions on its premises or under its sponsorship. The IRB will approve and regulate any proposed research protocol involving human subjects, including all behavioral or social research studies, which includes evaluation research.
