Our faculty and staff make every effort to engage, support and encourage undergraduates both inside and outside the classroom. All full time faculty serve as academic advisors to all our undergraduate majors. In addition, faculty are trained experts and conduct research in a variety of biological areas (i.e. genetics, neuroscience, ecology, molecular and cell biology and microbiology). They welcome the opportunity to train and work alongside undergraduates in their research which allows students to develop and apply critical thinking, writing, and analytical skills in a real world setting.
