The purposes of this policy are twofold:
The IACUC shall be constituted in compliance with applicable regulatory statutes. Members will be appointed by the designated Institutional Official with the advice and counsel of the sitting committee and practicing scientists, who will hold a voting majority on the committee. Members will serve three year terms. The IACUC will report to the designated Institutional Official.
All work with vertebrate animals must be approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee prior to work commencing.
Any employee reporting concerns about laboratory animal research to external agencies is encouraged also to report those concerns to a university Institutional Official prior to or at the same time as reporting to an external agency. This will assist the university in taking the appropriate action to correct any concerns, and will assist the university in complying with Federal, State, and Local laws and regulations.
