MSU Winter Break

November 16, 2022

Beginning December 2022, the university is implementing a Winter Break at the end of the year. This year, the Winter Break will be observed from December 23 through January 2. The Winter Break will function the same as university holidays and the university will be closed. Because the university will be closed, the MSU Human Research Protection, including the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Compliance offices will also be closed from December 23 through January 2. We will reopen at the start of business on Tuesday, January 3.

We encourage researchers to please keep this in mind when planning your IRB submissions. If you will be submitting an application to the IRB office in the upcoming months, we also encourage you to submit it as soon as you are able to. Please let the IRB coordinator know if there are any urgent deadlines or constraints. If you have any questions, please contact
