Committed and Enthusiastic Teacher-Scholars

Biology faculty ground our students in what we know and how we know it, and prepare them for what we don't. Students interact with faculty who serve as mentors to help them acquire the self-confidence, experience, and persistence needed for careers in science.

The Math and Sciences Division chair is Taviare Hawkins, PhD.
