BUILDING LEADERS in SCIENCE: At the College of Science, our passions are broad and far-reaching. Our researchers have access to world-class facilities that help them solve critical problems, from energy conservation and ecosystem survival, to healthy aging and clean water supplies. Attracting students from around the world,  we create experiences for them that go beyond the classroom.  

DIVERSITY: The College of Science strongly supports the university's commitment to diversity in all forms and is unwavering in its support of University's interdependent principles of Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity. The College remains deeply committed to motivating and inspiring women, first generation college students and minority students and other diverse populations to pursue careers in science. Read on.
