RCR Education Advisory Committee

The RCR Education Advisory Committee (RCREAC) is composed of representatives from schools and colleges of Boston University with students participating in BU RCR instruction programs. The Committee meets once per spring and fall semester, generally toward the end of each semester.

Research Compliance provides the infrastructure for core RCR programs and verifies institutional and investigator compliance with regulatory requirements. The Research Compliance office works directly with the RCREAC to accomplish its mission.

Please see the RCREAC 2016-2017 Roster for a complete list of the committee and subcommittee members.
