The Roger Williams University Human Subjects Review Board (HSRB) shall have five members from the RWU faculty/administrative staff and one member from outside of the University who has competence in the field of human subject research.
In addition, according to federal regulations, there must be one non-University member on the HSRB. In the case of reviews involving prisoners, an alternate member, the prisoner or his designee, must sit on the board when the review takes place.
The five RWU members chosen should have demonstrated evidence of a background in research involving human subjects.
The taking of minutes, including all rulings of the Board, shall occur at every meeting. The responsibility for this shall rotate among the Board members. Minutes and rulings shall be published on the website no later than 10 working days after the Board meeting, as consistent with RWU policy.
