The College of Natural Sciences comprises a dynamic community of scholars in the physical, mathematical, behavioral, and life sciences. Our mission is to conduct cutting edge research in our foundation fields, to actively engage in important interdisciplinary research, and to educate and inspire the next generation of scholars, researchers, and professional leaders.

Natural Sciences alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and retirees demonstrated their commitment to the mission and values of our College by contributing over $25 million dollars during the Campaign for Colorado State. Your generous contributions allowed us to elevate the experiences of our students and faculty, to support faculty research and outreach programs, and to enhance our research and teaching facilities.

For more than 40 years, the College has been advancing knowledge and transforming lives through innovative teaching, research, and outreach. We are known internationally for our global reach and extraordinary impact to society, and we continue to attract scholars worldwide who are dedicated to transformational research and providing a world-class education for our undergraduate and graduate students.

Your ongoing gifts to the advancement of the College of Natural Sciences will enable us to continue educating generations of scientists, mathematicians, and leaders equipped to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

It is my commitment as Dean to ensure that this College continues to promote and nurture student success and maintain our culture of excellence in research, teaching, and outreach. I want to thank all of our donors for their generosity during the campaign. With your continued assistance we can foster innovative, action-oriented scholarship in the sciences that seeks solutions to the world’s great challenges.
