American College of Animal Welfare (ACAW) Fourth Annual Animal Welfare Short Course
This year the ACAW welcomes Colorado State University Distinguished Professor Bernard Rollin. Dr. Rollin has spent the last 45 years working relentlessly to raise awareness about how animals are treated on farms, in laboratories, in rodeo arenas, on hunting grounds and in slaughterhouses. He helped to establish legislation to control pain for animals in research and played an instrumental role in eliminating the use of sow stalls or gestation crates, which he has called “one of the most egregiously inhumane housing systems” in agriculture.
The program consists of lectures on animal welfare at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh, NC; including short presentations on the history and purposes of ACAW, the ACAW application process, and the ACAW exam process. Lectures will focus on topics that will help prepare individuals for the ACAW exam, and will emphasize knowledge areas listed in the ACAW Role Delineation Document (RDD;http://www.acaw.org). Applicants applying under the alternate route may wish to use selected lectures as documentation of their knowledge for some aspects of their ACAW application.
