Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

Committee Meetings

The IACUC comprises at least one representative from each major administrative unit, or college, of the university. The Institutional Official, which at K-State is the vice president for research, appoints committee members.

IACUC meetings are generally held in the afternoon of the first and third Thursday of each month, unless scheduling conflicts arise. 

  • URCO contacts and invites to attend those PIs whose protocols will be reviewed at a full committee meeting.
  • PIs are not required to attend, but coming to the meeting facilitates the review process and results in faster turnaround times in many cases.
  • PIs who cannot attend are encouraged to send a representative or designee to give an overview of the project and answer questions from committee members.
