Animals: Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

The IACUC is a federally-mandated university committee responsible for maintaining a quality program of animal care in a research and teaching environment. Faculty, staff, veterinarians and members of the community serve on the IACUC.

Before beginning a research or teaching activity with animals, the IACUC must review and approve activities that involve nonhuman vertebrate animals, regardless of funding, which take place on Appalachian's campus or are undertaken by Appalachian faculty, staff or students. The IACUC reviews activities with nonhuman vertebrate animals to ensure compliance with the Animal Welfare Act, the Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and our Animal Welfare Assurance.
