Human Subjects Research

Please note that although the full board does not meet through the summer months, submissions for exempt and expedited proposals will continue to be reviewed.  Submissions requiring full review will be scheduled for the first meeting of the fall semester.


The All-College Review Board for Human Subjects Research (HSR) is a standing committee at Ithaca College responsible for reviewing all College research and teaching activities conducted by faculty, staff, students that involve the use of human subjects to ensure that these activities minimize the potential for risk.


To comply with federal and state laws for protection of human subjects in research and Ithaca College policies, all research that involves human subjects must be reviewed by and must receive approval from the HSR Board prior to data collection.



Sponsored Research provides staffing and administrative assistance to support the HSR Board. Direct all inquiries to or call extension 607-274-3113.
