All faculty planning to conduct research or classroom activity involving live vertebrate animals for research and/or teaching 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
