Institutional Proposal Review Board (IPRB)

The Institutional Proposal Review Board (IPRB) reviews research projects that involve human participants to uphold two broad standards: first, that participants are not placed at undue risk; second, that they give uncoerced, informed consent to their participation.

With representation from a wide range of disciplines and from outside the academic community, the IPRB gives prompt but individualized attention to the numerous research projects at the university.

If you are interested in conducting research at Coastline Community College, please submit IPRB Review Form and associated documentation (outlined in the IPRB Form) to Dr. Aeron Zentner at
