Mission Statement & Objectives

Mission Statement

The College of Science builds the scientific economy and scientific literacy of the Wasatch Front region and beyond.  We carry out this mission by offering academic degrees, certificates, and courses, including service and general education courses, and opportunities for collaborative research by students and faculty, in an atmosphere which encourages innovation and which creates opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders to attain their personal and professional goals.



The College of Science seeks to:

  • Develop and deliver courses and programs that provide students with the knowledge and skills required to enter and succeed in scientific professions, or to continue into graduate and professional studies.
  • Stimulate learning and improve knowledge retention through use of engaging and inclusive teaching methodologies.
  • Augment teaching with engaged learning opportunities outside the classroom. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, faculty-mentored student research, internships, service learning, and extracurricular field experiences.
  • Maintain faculty expertise in their disciplines through facilitating research, and in teaching methods through facilitating participation in pedagogical training.
  • Enhance student degree completion though effective advising.
  • Promote science and science education, and recruit students into science, through engagement with the K-12 community and the public at large.
  • Develop understanding and support among the constituencies of the College of Science, through fund development, corporate and community partnerships, and alumni & parent relations, in order to secure the resources required to fulfill the College’s mission.
  • Implement a marketing communications program focusing on consistent messages and identity through publications, advertising, social media, and online communication.


Each department within the College has established a mission statement, philosophy and objectives which guide the curriculum, student activities and faculty activities.
