The Grinnell College Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is charged with the development, implementation, and continuing review and evaluation of mechanisms necessary to ensure humane care and treatment of research animals at Grinnell College. Research animals are defined as vertebrate animals used for research or teaching. The IACUC is authorized to take those steps necessary to ensure that all animal-related research and teaching activities conducted at the college or elsewhere and under the direction of college faculty, are guided by high scientific and ethical standards and meet or exceed all applicable federal, state and local animalwelfare regulations, relevant voluntary guidelines, and Grinnell College Institutional Policy. The IACUC can provide consultation to faculty, students, and staff about planned use of non-research animal activities at the college, but is not responsible for the oversight of these animals and their care and use.
