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 science.
In an effort to address these dual concerns, the Human Subjects Committee seeks to apprise the University community of its responsibilities toward human participants in research. It notifies faculty, staff, and students of the purpose of the committee, the federal regulations and institutional policies that support the protection of human subjects, and the procedures to follow in developing research protocols and conducting research over time to ensure that human subjects are properly protected.
All faculty, staff and students must comply with Human Subjects Committee policies as defined in the Human Subjects Committee Manual for Researchers, available in the Resource Depot section.
