Human Remains Oversight Board

The mission of the HROB is to ensure that all human remains discovered by any means (intentional or accidental), acquired, used in training or education, or stored by Princeton University employees, including faculty, staff, and students are done so respectfully and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies. In addition to facilitating legal compliance, the HROB recognizes a moral and ethical responsibility to ensure that human remains under the University’s control are managed appropriately. These principles and HROB’s oversight responsibility apply regardless of the location of the human remains, i.e., includes off-campus field research.
