Faculty, staff, and students who conduct research involving human subjects can access information regarding Federal, University of Wisconsin System, and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater policies and procedures. This site provides links to the Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB), forms, and protocol submission information timeline, resources for developing a protocol, and other resources designed to help researchers improve study design while protecting participants.
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater encourages and supports free and responsible investigation by faculty, staff, and students, and adheres to the policies and procedures set forth by: CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS; Title 45 Public Welfare; Department of Health and Human Services; Part 46 Protection of Human Subjects.
The policies and procedures of the Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) have been developed to protect the rights and welfare of participants in research.
Research projects that involve human subjects will require review by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater IRB to determine if you have employed adequate measures to protect the participants involved in your study. In addition, each member of your research team is required to complete the CITI Program - Social, Behavioral, and Educational Human Research Training course prior to protocol submission.
The IRB guide contains guidelines and instructions to assist you in the preparation of a protocol for submission. Peruse the information to determine which parts of the protocol to complete and to help you understand the review process.

On the final registration page. You will be asked a series of questions to determine the educational modules required by UW-Whitewater to conduct Human or Animal Research.
The only requirement for human research is the "Social, Behavioral, & Educational (SBE) Sciences - All Researchers" (Basic Stage) module, this incorporates parts of all of the other modules. Additional/alternative modules are available for Biomedical Research.
If you have been awarded a federal grant, additional modules or one-on-one training may be required. Please review the grant requirements or contact ORSP to help determine the educational requirements for
grant compliance. The first course for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) is available on the CITI Program site at any time.
Upon completion of the educational modules and a passing score of 80% on the final quiz, a report will be sent to the ORSP Compliance Manager notifying them of your results. Successful completion of the required modules must be available and will be verified, by the Compliance Manager prior to IRB or IACUC protocol approval. Any training for grant compliance must be completed prior to award acceptance. Training certification expires 4 years from the date of successful quiz completion and renewal will be required at that time.
You may login to your CITI account at any time to review and print your information, or to choose additional training modules as required. Upon transfer to another institution that uses the CITI program, you may also change your affiliation.
