Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

The Institution has established an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee which is qualified through the experience and expertise of its members to oversee the institution's animal program, facilities and procedures. Each institution that receives PHS support for activities involving vertebrate animals or is subject to the authority of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) must operate an animal care and use program with clear lines of authority and responsibility.

Members of the IACUC at Saint Michael's College are appointed by the Vice President of Academic Affairs who serves as the Institutional Official for the IACUC. The committee consists of faculty and employees of Saint Michael's College as well as members of the greater community.
