Harvey Mudd College partners with Claremont Graduate University (CGU) to set guidelines pertaining to IRB processes and approval. The CGU Institutional Review Board ensures compliance with federal and state regulations concerning the use of humans as research subjects. Their focus is to facilitate faculty investigators and help train student investigators to understand and carry out the fundamental purpose of all IRBs, which is to assure the Investigator’s Respectful Behavior toward every person who participates in research as a “human subject.”
HMC’s Office of Sponsored Research works with the Research Committee and Dean of Faculty to ensure compliance with such “limited-submission” policies. This “Limited Submission Internal Selection” policy describes the HMC’s method of determining individual applicants for limited-submission funding programs.
