About the School of Science

Grapple with the big problems and bold possibilities of science. We challenge our students to become intentional learners and integrative thinkers—in a word, scientists. From classroom to lab bench to field station, a thirst for discovery drives everything we do. Because, as scientists, what we don’t know—the mystery molecule, the elusive equation—is what compels us.
