- What kinds of animal research can I do at RIT?
- All proposed research with vertebrate animals (all fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals – except human) requires RIT IACUC (Institute Animal Care and Use Committee) advance notification and approval. Email the IACUC chair Larry Buckley (email@example.com) for a proposal template that must be completed, submitted, and approved prior to any vertebrate animal research.

While the phrase 'letter of commitment' is often used interchangeably with 'letter of support,' there is a fundamental difference between the two. A letter of support may, for example, state that a community group endorses or approves of a particular project. A letter of commitment, on the other hand, is a statement of active participation in the project. It specifies resources that the group will commit to the project and identifies what role it will play in bringing the project to a successful conclusion.
