BSU REC ACTIVITIES
Research Ethics Committee (REC)
Bishop Stuart University recognizes the scientific and ethical responsibility for human participants involved in research and education and enjoins all individuals involved to maintain the highest standards of ethical considerations.
This concern extends to researchers/ investigators to comply with the specific requirements and guidelines established. The BSU-REC reviews and approves all types of research proposals involving human participants with a view to safeguarding the dignity, rights, safety, and well-being of all actual and potential research participants.
Research and Grants Office
Bishop Stuart University introduced a research support fund to enable staff members to participate in research and innovations alongside teaching, in line with the university’s strategic plan.
The scheme seeks to stimulate research activities and generate new knowledge of high scientific merit that fosters development. The university invites proposals for annual research grants amounting to five million shillings for each of the successful proposals and normally funding is available to 10 – 20 projects.
