  HSRB Structure

The Human Subjects Review Board (HSRB) is comprised of at least 5 members who have the professional competence necessary to review research proposals involving human subjects. The HSRB is sufficiently qualified to make decisions regarding research protocol through the experience and expertise of its members, the diversity of the membersí backgrounds, and their sensitivity to community issues. HSRB board membership is for staggered two-year terms, with the possibility of renewal. The HSRB chairperson is elected by the board members. HSRB membership requirements:

  • The HSRB includes both male and female members;
  • The HSRB includes members representing a variety of disciplines;
  • The HSRB includes one member whose primary expertise is in a non-scientific area;
  • The HSRB includes one member whose primary expertise is a scientific area;
  • The HSRB includes one member who is not affiliated in any way with Monmouth College.

HSRB members are solicited and appointed by current HSRB members with approval of the Dean of Academic Affairs. Monmouth College faculty interested in serving on the HSRB are encouraged to contact the HSRB chair.
