The Department of Biology is committed to providing high quality education to our students, to advancing biological knowledge through research, and to providing scientific expertise locally, nationally and internationally.


The Department of Biology is dedicated to the proposition that biology is a fundamental discipline of human experience and discovery. Our faculty, staff and students engage in research and teaching at the forefront of modern biology to increase our understanding of biological organization and function.
