"The task is not so much to see what nobody has yet seen, as to think what nobody has yet thought concerning that which everybody sees.”

- Arthur Schopenhauer

Discovery is key to science and innovation. It can be found in all of our work: in the classroom, in the lab, and in our students, faculty, and alumni. Our students discover as scientists, trained in our labs and classrooms with hands-on work and research. They leave prepared to reinvent themselves as science and the world evolve, meeting the complex global challenges of today and those of tomorrow. Discovery percolates throughout our College of Science and is strenghtened by our absolute commitment to excellence, diversity of ideas and people, and service.
