UW Oshkosh is committed to the humane care and use of animals for educational and research purposes.  The utilization of animals is a privilege and the responsibility involved in the care and use of animals is a shared act. The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) oversees the use of all vertebrate animal use sponsored by any unit of UW Oshkosh. A vertebrate is defined as any mammal (EXCEPT for human beings), cold-blooded animals such as fish, reptiles and amphibians, and live eggs from birds and reptiles and other embryos therein.

The Animal Care and Use Program is accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC International) and is managed in accordance with the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, the AVMA Guidelines, and taxon-specific guidelines for wildlife. The IACUC’s oversight keeps UW Oshkosh in compliance with federal Animal Welfare Act Regulations and PHS Policy.

 The IACUC oversees the following general categories of work:

         1. All live vertebrate animal use sponsored by any unit of UW Oshkosh

         2. All live vertebrate animal use in collaboration with another institution

         3. All live vertebrate animal use sponsored by a non-affiliated unit at a UW Oshkosh site

 

Specifically, the IACUC oversees animal use for research (including observational studies), teaching, entertainment, outreach or exhibition at special events. Employees or students requesting the use or presence of service, assistance or therapy animals on campus must contact Dean of Students office (students) or Equity and Affirmative Action (staff) for approval.
