Dean's Message

Science and mathematics help us understand the world. We use science—the scientific method, observation, experiment, interpretation, argument, and proposing hypotheses—to explain what happens around us, in the environment or in our own bodies. We use mathematics—symbols, equations, modeling, and theoretical analysis—to concisely describe what happens around us. When we understand something at a deep level, we use science and mathematics to make predictions about what will happen, if we do this, or if we do that. We modify our hypotheses and our models and our equations as we observe what actually happens. Because science and mathematics are so fundamental, the College of Science and Mathematics takes our mission very seriously, to impart what science and mathematics can do, and to push the envelope of knowledge further out through research.
