Austin College affirms that human research subjects should be treated with dignity, respect, and with due regard for their welfare. To protect human research subjects, the College established the Institutional Review Board. We understand “human subjects” to include all individuals and groups from whom researchers anticipate gathering information or data necessary for the successful completion of the research design.
