Mission Statement

We, the faculty, classified staff, and administrators of the Mathematics, Sciences, and Engineering (MSE) Division, hold as our highest goal the education of our students in the understanding of the natural world. By providing innovative and engaging classes and pedagogy, effective and empathetic student support, and efficient and responsive administration, we aim to provide our students with the resources they need to grow in their ability to critically analyze the world around them. Our goal is to instill and encourage a sense of wonder and enthusiastic exploration of the laws which govern the functioning of the natural world, its history and structure, and the diversity of life within it. Our students will leave us with an understanding of both nature and technology which is both deep and broad, and be able use what they have learned to act wisely, think creatively, and encourage deeper understanding of the world in others.
