Reporting Animal Welfare Concerns
The University Animal Care department has a mechanism by which any person may report anonymously deficiencies in the care and treatment of animals used in exhibition, research or teaching activities at the University. The IACUC will promptly investigate all reported animal welfare concerns or complaints of non-compliance with institutional policies that involve the care and treatment of animals at SJSU.
Per California’s Whistleblower Protection Act, no CSU employee, IACUC member, or laboratory personnel shall be discriminated against or be subject to any reprisal for reporting violations of any animal welfare regulation or standard.
Individuals should contact the IACUC Coordinator, the Campus Veterinarian, or the IACUC Chairperson by phone, electronically or campus mail to relay concerns related to animal care and use at San Jose State University or Moss Landing Marine Laboratories.
