Liberty University Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is charged with ensuring that all vertebrate animals used for research or instruction at Liberty University are treated ethically and humanely in accordance with the law.

The IACUC reviews proposed studies involving animals to ensure that the animals are treated ethically and humanely, in accordance with the laws and policies set forth by the USDA, OLAW, and Liberty University. The IACUC is also responsible for making sure that all researchers and laboratory personnel are properly trained in the handling and care of animals.
