The College of Integrated Science and Technology encompasses
programs of professional education whose common denominator is the use of
science and technology to enhance the quality of life in the modern world.
Over the past several decades,
remarkable developments have occurred in science and technology, altering our
lives and our society. Continued development of human civilization, as well as
of the quality of life in American society, depend on the integration of scientific
knowledge, on technical capabilities, on the application of ethical principles,
and on an understanding and appreciation of cultural commonalities and
differences. Consequently, there is a need for individuals who understand the
importance of discipline specialization, as well as cross-disciplinary
connections, and also the integration of knowledge for practical application.
These individuals must have the flexibility to be able to operate in an
environment of uncertainty and complexity, the drive to seize such
opportunities as may arise, and the vision and creativity to create new
opportunities as needed. Our faculty is dedicated to producing graduates with a
scientific knowledge base and a matching set of interpersonal, organizational
and technical skills. To this end the faculty not only educates our students,
but also serves as a source of inspiration and as role models.
The college places importance
on carrying out its role within the community of Academic Affairs, working
collaboratively with other colleges, and working in support of division-wide
programs and priorities.
