Does the institution have a written policy explicitly prohibiting laboratory animals in its care from being subjected to severe and unrelieved pain and distress?:
No

The written policy explicitly prohibiting laboratory animals in the institution’s care from being subjected to severe and unrelieved pain and distress:

Whitman College strongly believes in the ethical care and treatment of animal and human subjects to be used in biological, biomedical and behavioral research, and has established policies to ensure that College and national regulations are followed. If your research proposal involves vertebrate animals, your research protocol must be approved by the Whitman Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). Whitman's IACUC is approved by the federal Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW). Whitman College does not have its own written policy - it adheres to the requirements of its OLAW and IACUC assurance.
