Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

All activities involving animals must be conducted in accordance with humane and ethical principles established through federal laws, regulations, and guidelines.  Tuskegee University has an Animal Welfare Assurance Number on file from the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW), and, therefore, follows the Public Health Service (PHS) Policy on the Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals. The IACUC is the primary authority on campus for all matters to animal care and use.  The IACUC requires the Attending Veterinarian, who serves as a member on the committee, to enforce policies established by the committee for animal care and use.
