The Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC),  an entity of the Office of Research Compliance and Integrity, provides oversight in animal research activities at GVSU.

The Committee's role is to ensure that investigators, research technicians, animal care personnel, and students are properly trained to conduct animal research in a humane manner.

The Committee ensures that all animal research at GVSU is conducted in accordance with IACUC standards and complies with the Public Health Service policies and USDA animal welfare regulations.
