Reporting and Investigating Animal Welfare Concerns
The humane care and use of animals is of paramount importance to the University of Louisville. Individuals who may have specific concerns about animal care and treatment are strongly encouraged to report their observations of suspected deficiencies to the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), Research Resources Facilities (RRF), Institutional Official (Executive Vice President for Health Affairs), or Institutional Compliance Office. Individuals generating a report of concern shall not be discriminated against or be subject to any reprisal for generating the report. Individuals who desire anonymity may be certain that the IACUC will handle a report of concern in confidence to the extent permitted by law.
