Membership Roster

The IRB is currently comprised of sixteen full members with vote and two ex officio members without vote. At least one full member is not affiliated with the University in any other capacity. The remaining full members represent the four constituent college faculties of the University (Arts and Sciences, Education, Health Professions, and Optometry), and the University Library. Full members are elected to staggered terms of three years, with the allowance for multiple terms. Ex officio members are the administrative assistant and the Liaison to Pacific University, typically the Vice Provost for Research.

Occasionally, the IRB may invite individuals with competence in special areas to assist in the review of issues which require expertise beyond, or in addition to, that available on the IRB. However, these individuals may not vote with the IRB.
