Human Research Review Committee

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.
