Human Research Review Committee


UPDATED HRRC POLICIES ARE IN EFFECT FOR ALL NEW PROTOCOL SUBMISSIONS. Updated application forms can be found at the bottom of this page.

Notable changes include:

  • Students may no longer be listed as the PI on an HRRC protocol. All submissions must come from a faculty or staff member.
  • A completed Conflict of Interest Disclosure and Certification Form must be submitted for each person named on the protocol.
  • All persons named on the protocol are required to have documented Responsible Conduct of Research training and Human Subjects Protection training. The specific training required is dependent upon previous GVSU HRRC protocol experience.

Please see the May 03, 2017, article in the News section below for further details.

The Human Research Review Committee (HRRC), an entity of the Office of Research Compliance and Integrity, 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 authorized by the HRRC prior to the beginning of the research.

The HRRC is comprised of GVSU faculty, staff and community members, who review proposed research studies involving living persons.
