A Message from the Dean
The mission of the School of Natural Science and Mathematics is the formation of the whole person. Not only do students take challenging classes with nationally-renowned professors, they have opportunities to discuss moral and ethical issues with peers, to conduct independent research projects, to gain work experience in off-campus internships, and to gain leadership experience in any of our nine student clubs. Our students graduate as well-rounded and accomplished individuals, prepared to engage in a science or math career.
