Out of our 100 plus faculty, about 80 are currently managing their own research groups. In fact, through their efforts and assistance from graduate students, our college receives $8 million-plus annually through nationally competitive grants. This means there are numerous opportunities to work side-by-side with faculty members who are pushing the research envelope and making discoveries in areas of hydrology, nanoscience and nanotechnology, evolutionary biology, biogenetic methods, and much more.
