Description of Committee
The University recognizes an inherent obligation to insure the rights and well-being of people who serve as subjects in research conducted under its auspice are adequately protected. In the matter of protection of human subjects, it relies on the good judgment of its faculty and administration augmented by a special review committee, the Institutional Review Board (HSIRB). The University calls for a posture of heightened sensitivity and special scrutiny on the part of the initiators of any project and of their immediate supervisors as the primary agents of the University in these matters.
