Davidson College recognizes the necessary role that live animals play in research and teaching as a privilege not to be taken lightly.

Our goal is to contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge while maintaining the most humane and gentle care to animal subjects.

In the spirit of providing a high quality of care to animals used in the laboratory, this institution follows the regulations outlined under the Animal Welfare Act and sets policies according to The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (PDF).

Davidson College also maintains a letter of assurance to comply with the National Institutes of Health Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
