College of the Environment and Life Sciences
In the College of the Environment and Life Sciences, students develop new scientific knowledge and partner with world class faculty in the laboratory and in the field, steeped in the sense that stewardship of the earth's resources is at the heart of their experience with us. Whether they engage in the study of marine biology or biotechnology, nutrition or environmental science, CELS students work with professors who are also nationally recognized researchers, conducting cutting edge science to meet the pressing needs of the global community.
Our Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences houses state-of-the-art teaching facilities, high-tech research labs, a genomics center and aquarium facility, all to meet the needs of the College's programs in biotechnology and in the environmental, life, and health sciences.
