The Human Research Review Committee (HRRC) is comprised of GVSU faculty, staff and community members who review proposed research studies involving living persons.

The HRRC ensures that the basic rights and welfare of research participants are fostered and protected. The HRRC supports researchers through its coordinated activities in education, regulatory compliance oversight, and post approval monitoring. All research involving human subjects performed at GVSU and/or by GVSU students, staff, and/or faculty must be reviewed and approved by the Human Research Review Committee prior to beginning the research.
