IACUC Operations: Pandemic & Beyond

September 17, 2020 | 1:00-2:15 PM ET

During the COVID-19 pandemic, IACUCs across the nation have had to adjust their operations to accommodate working remotely. This has necessitated the leveraging of electronic programs and processes to carry out IACUC functions, some of which may have already been in place. Others have had to be developed for these novel circumstances. Keeping high employee engagement has been another challenge of the remote work setting.

During this webinar, Kathryn Cavanaugh and Stacy Pritt will share methods for conducting IACUC business electronically and virtually and will explore strategies for keeping IACUC staff connected and engaged while working remotely.


This webinar will discuss the following topics:

  • Where we came from - Institutional history of the transition to telework (kick-started by COVID-19)
  • Adapting - Leveraging electronic programs and processes to conduct IACUC operations remotely
  • Fostering employee engagement in a remote setting - Strategies for keeping employees connected while working remotely
  • Looking towards the future - Digital strategies that may continue beyond mandatory telework

What will I learn?

After attending this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify methods for conducting IACUC business virtually and remotely
  • Discuss strategies for transitioning in-person processes to electronic platforms
  • Implement employee engagement strategies in a remote work setting

Who should attend?
