The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is responsible for overseeing all activities involving animals at Carleton. As mandated by federal law, the committee must review and approve all research and teaching activities involving animals, to ascertain that these activities meet ethical standards for humane animal care and use, in accord with the standards set out by the NIH and USDA.

The IACUC ensures the humane care of animals through the semiannual inspection of animal housing and research facilities, the review of all animal care programs and animal usage protocols, and investigation of any complaints made regarding animal use. In accordance with federal law, the IACUC consists of several Carleton faculty including at least one research scientist, a non-scientist, a veterinarian, and representative from the local community who is not affiliated with the College.
