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.
