The Institute has seven (7) committees and one ongoing project (a signature project). The committees each have a focus.

These committees and the on-going signature project are as follows:

The Institute views the Institute committees and their members as valuable resources to develop new or enhanced science, law, public policy, and other empirical or social research and data towards animal welfare renaissance. The Institute provides to the operating committees the tools and environment of productive and creative collaboration; and effective implementation of their product. To fulfill the Institute’s goals for collaboration, the Institute has staff and technology available to facilitate meetings and other communications.
