GEN 1.5.(3). Care and Use of Animals.
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh encourages and supports free investigation by faculty, academic staff and students into any general area of knowledge. The University’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) assists investigators and classroom instructors in ensuring that all animals used for teaching, research, or other activities at this university shall be used and cared for according to the principles stated in the current “Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals” (National Research Council), and the Animal Welfare Act (Public Law 89-544 and amendments), to conduct teaching, research, and other activities. The IACUC reviews all project and instructional protocols involving animals, including extramural grant proposals, Faculty Development proposals, graduate student research, and independent study courses. Each investigator must initiate the IACUC animal-use protocol review process at the appropriate time so as not to delay or endanger their proposed activity. Animal use protocol forms are available from the Departments of Psychology and Biology/Microbiology or the College of Letters and Science Dean’s Office.
