Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects

The Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects serves as the Institutional Review Board for the University. The CPHS was first formed in 1971 at California State University, Fresno for the purpose of institutional review of research with human subjects. The policy promulgated at that time has been in force until the adoption of the present Policy and Procedures.

The purpose of the policy and procedures at California State University, Fresno is to protect the rights and health of human subjects used in research investigations while promoting free inquiry and research at this University, and to assure compliance with governmental regulations as specified by the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) — U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (CPHS) of the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development.

California State University, Fresno has obtained a Federalwide Assurance (FWA), an assurance of compliance approved by the OHRP.
