I want to remind all faculty that if you are planning to conduct research or classroom activity involving live vertebrate animals for research and/or teaching, you must obtain prior approval from the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee before undertaking that activity. This committee provides federally-mandated oversight of all activities that have a direct impact on the well-being of animals.

Ithaca College’s animal use program is managed in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations. A link to federal guidelines can be found on the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee website –

For protocol forms or questions about animal care and use policies, specific reviews, procedures, and all other technical matters, please contact

Protocols should be submitted to or hard copy to Sponsored Research via MaryAnn Taylor, Office of the Provost by Wednesday, September 4, 2013.

Should you wish to sign up for the IACUC mailing list to receive information about up-coming meetings and deadlines, please contact or call 607-274-1206.
