The Human Subjects Review Committee is a committee that performs ethical reviews of proposed research involving human subjects. It is charged with protecting the rights and welfare of human research subjects. The 3 areas for protecting human research subjects include (1) respect for persons, (2) beneficence, and (3) justice. These 3 principles are now accepted as the 3 requirements for the ethical conduct of research involving human subjects ("The Belmont Report: Ethical Principals and Guidelines for the Protection of Human Subjects of Research").
Researchers may contact any of the following committee members with questions: James Bowley (Religious Studies); Dr. Kathryn Hahn (Psychology); Dr. Kurt Thaw (Psychology); Ming Tsui (Sociology).
