Location and Facilities
At the College of Arts and Sciences, research isn't just our priority; it's our mission. All students, including freshmen, are trained in and have access to all of our state-of-the-art instrumentation, including magnetic resonance spectrometers, mass spectrometer-based separation instruments and next generation sequencing computational facilities. Our faculty, undergraduates and graduate students work together on research using the apprenticeship model common to advanced science. And it all takes place in our Science and Technology Center, which underwent a $35 million renovation in 2007 that provided students and faculty with an additional 35,000 square feet of space. It boasts one of the most innovative and energy-efficient teaching and research facilities for science and technology in the country.
