Institutional Review Board

The mission of MATC's Institutional Review Board is to determine the appropriateness of research projects relative to:

  1. The risk to the subjects,
  2. The anticipated benefits to the subjects, the mission of Milwaukee Area Technical College, and others,
  3. The importance of the knowledge that may reasonably be expected to result, and
  4. The informed consent process to be employed.
