The Southwest Baptist University Research Review Board (RRB) is committed to the protection of all participants involved in research conducted by SBU faculty or students. All research involving human subjects is closely screened by the RRB to ensure ethical principles are followed and that the participants’ rights to privacy, health and general well-being are protected. RRB review is done according to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services Code of Federal Regulations (45 CFR, part 46) and as stated in the SBU Faculty Academic Guidelines.
SBU RRB approval is necessary when research involves human subjects in any of the following situations:
Have your RRB application (see resources section below) reviewed and signed by the faculty sponsor, department chair and college dean and then send to the RRB chair AND complete an approved ethics course within the last three years per Federal Guidelines. See 45 CFR 46. Title 45 Code of the Federal Regulations, part 46.
