UW Oshkosh is committed to the humane care and use of animals for educational and research purposes.  The utilization of animals is a privilege and the responsibility involved in the care and use of animals is a shared act. The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) oversees the use of all vertebrate animal use sponsored by any unit of UW Oshkosh.

The Animal Care and Use Program is accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC International)  and is managed in accordance with the guide for the care and use of laboratory animals, the Animal Welfare Act Regulations, and the PHS Policy. The IACUC’s oversight keeps UW Oshkosh in compliance with federal Animal Welfare Act regulations and PHS Policy.

 

 

 

The IACUC oversees the following general categories of work:
  1. All live vertebrate animal use sponsored by any unit of UW Oshkosh
  2. All live vertebrate animal use in collaboration with another institution
  3. All live vertebrate animal use sponsored by a non-affiliated unit at a UWO site

 

Specifically, the IACUC oversees animal use for research (even interventional and observational studies), teaching (K-12 or adult learners, UWO students or others), entertainment and fund-raising.  IACUC jurisdiction does not cover K9 officers assisting law enforcement or for use in training sessions, campus wildlife (unless intervention or observation of animals is occurring for research, teaching, testing, entertainment or fund-raising), people walking or transporting their pets across campus property, or service animals assisting students, employees, or guests

What is the definition of a "vertebrate" for IACUC purposes?

A vertebrate is defined as any mammal (EXCEPT for human beings), cold-blooded animals such as fish, reptiles and amphibians, and live eggs from birds and reptiles and other embryos therein.
