Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee
Kennesaw State University complies with all applicable provisions of the Animal Welfare Act and other state and federal statutes and regulations related to animals. In meeting these obligations Kennesaw State University is guided by the "U.S. Government Principles for the Utilization and Care of Vertebrate Animals Used in Testing, Research, and Training."
The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), appointed by the KSU President, is qualified through the experience and expertise of its members to oversee the University's animal care and use program and facilities. The IACUC advises the Vice President for Research (the University’s Institutional Official) about problems or deficiencies and recommends steps for correction. The IACUC also reviews all animal use protocols for consideration of humane animal care and use and performs semiannual reviews of the animal care and use program and facilities as required by federal regulations and Kennesaw State University policy.
