The Animal Resources Center (ARC) oversees the care and use of vertebrate animals utilized as part of the research and teaching activities of the University and serves as a source of expertise and support for investigators and the administration on all issues related to laboratory animals. We accomplish this by:

  • Providing quality care for research animals
  • Ensuring that the vivarium facilities and the campus animal care program continue to meet the standards for continued AAALAC accreditation
  • Overseeing the orientation and training of individuals involved in animal research
  • Providing technical services and specialized training in support of ongoing research projects
  • Recruiting and retaining a top-notch staff
  • Working closely with other groups in the University to assure compliance with all relevant laws, regulations, and policies regarding animal care and use
