Human Research Ethics Committee
Our Human Research Ethics Committee is responsible for considering applications for ethical review, monitoring the conduct of approved protocols and advising the University on related policies and guidelines.
Student and staff participants
If you intend on inviting Griffith staff or students to participate in your research, ensure review the Surveying of Griffith Students and Staff Policy (PDF 55K) and submit an Application to Conduct a Survey form if required. To call for staff and student participants, you can submit a request for your project to be included in the monthly e-newsletter from the Vice President (Corporate Services), which lists current Griffith research projects calling for volunteers.
