About Us

The Individuals Advancing Science

The Department of Biology faculty consists of a diverse group of individuals with research interest ranging from the building blocks of life to exploring diverse ecosystems both on land and underwater.  The faculty can efficiently conduct research due to the support of hardworking and dedicated staff.  Our department is not complete without significant assistance from post-doctoral students, graduate students, and visiting faculty.

The Department of Biology is committed to enriching the lives of students, faculty, and staff by providing a diverse academic community where the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and perspectives is an active part of living and learning. The department seeks to create an environment that fosters the recruitment and retention of a diverse student body, faculty, staff, and administration and works to increase diversity and access to higher education for groups underrepresented in the sciences by building an environment that welcomes, celebrates and promotes respect for diversity
