Human Subjects Committee

Welcome to the official website of the University of Hartford's Human Subjects Committee.

The Human Subjects Committee at the University of Hartford is charged with the ethical review and oversight of research that involves the participation of human subjects. The complementary concerns of the Human Subjects Committee are to protect the individual from harm and to support the advancement of ethics in science.

We strongly encourage you to review the Requirements/Process and General FAQ sections of this site as they may answer many of your questions regarding human subjects.

The committee meets monthly to review proposals. Meeting dates are listed in the Meeting Schedule section. Every year, the HSC is in recess for the month of August and during the Winter Break.

The University of Hartford participates in the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Human Subjects Training Program for the Protection of Human Research Subjects.

Every researcher submitting a research proposal to the Human Subjects Committee must provide CITI certification of human subjects training for themselves and any other researchers participating, including researchers from other institutions.

Information about the CITI program can be found on the Training section of this website.

For further information about the Human Subjects Committee, please contact the Chair, Dr. Stephen Misovich (Hillyer 110, 860.768.4721, or email
