HSRC Policy and Procedures

Principles Governing the HSRC

Three principles define Fuller Theological Seminary's approach to research with human subjects and are basic to the protection of the rights of human subjects: respect, beneficence, and justice.

Respect: In consideration of respect for persons, investigators are required to seek voluntary, written informed consent from potential subjects.

Beneficence: The principle of beneficence requires that researchers maximize the potential benefits to the subjects and minimize the potential risks of harm.

Justice: The principle of justice means that the subjects are selected fairly and that the risks and benefits of research are distributed equitably.
