Guidelines for Research with Human Subjects

Research done by students for a course, independent study, or senior project must be approved by the course instructor or faculty sponsor before data collection begins. In addition, certain research involving human subjects must be approved by the Human Subjects Committee before data collection begins. Research involving human subjects must be evaluated for:

  1. potential harm to subjects that may result from their participation
  2. potential benefits of the research for the subject and the community as a whole
  3. procedures used to insure the informed and voluntary participation of research subjects
  4. procedures used to insure the confidentiality of research subjects
  5. procedures for aftercare of research subjects when there is some potential for harm to participants resulting from their participation in the research

The complete guidelines, including exemptions and the review procedure, are available on the College Policies site (
