Office of the Dean

Interim Dean Dawit Haile, faculty and staff welcome you to the College of Natural and Health Sciences website.  Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, you are embarking on a journey where you will meet engaging faculty and be exposed to challenging academic study.  Our mission is to produce a highly educated student who will have the knowledge, skills and experiences to succeed in a global community. 

Our College offers a wide variety of program and class choices yet classes are generally small (80 percent having 20 students or fewer). Most of the classes are taught by full-time faculty members who are academic scholars and researchers who will serve as your advisors guiding you through your program of study.  Our faculty love what they do. 

Explore the departments and programs, contact our departments and faculty and learn how we can assist you in achieving your dreams of a successful life and career.  We are here to make those dreams a reality.
