Join Us

The College of Science has earned an international reputation for its strong research and academic programs. To maintain this tradition of excellence we must recruit and retain the best faculty talent available, provide the very best facilities and equipment to encourage breakthrough research, and we must attract the best undergraduate and graduate students possible.

The College of Science is dedicated to this mission of excellence, even as traditional funding sources continue to decline. The need for private support is greater than even before. To learn more about the Galileo Circle click here.
