The Roger Williams University HSRB policies are influenced by the guidelines of federal regulatory agencies; however, the RWU HSRB is ultimately the agency responsible for creating and overseeing these policies. The RWU HSRB applies a single standard to the evaluation of research involving human subjects. This standard is comprehensive and has considered the upcoming revisions to the Common Rule (Revisions to the Common Rule).

Our policy applies to all human subject research and is defined in this document. Please review this document to familiarize with the RWU HSRB policies.
