Mission, Vision and Goals

SSH&T Vision: To become a world leader in providing access to excellence in science education and research for the African American community and other communities underrepresented in science.

The mission of the School of Science Health and Technology is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, health, technology, and in other areas of scholarship that will best serve our community, our state, our nation and our world in the 21st century.

The School aims to increase the participation of African American and other underrepresented students in the STEM and health sciences disciplines. The school is committed to promoting the academic and professional success of students “one student at a time” through a supportive network of tutoring, topical workshops, individualized pre-professional advising, research internships, invited lectures, faculty development initiatives, specialized course offerings, and student club activities.

Our objectives are to:

  1. prepare students, through a rigorous undergraduate curriculum, for entry into graduate and professional studies in their chosen disciplines;
  2. advance the problem solving, analytical and critical thinking skills of students so that they can play leadership roles in a changing world;
  3. provide students learning experiences through involvement in research and hands on internship activities; and support faculty and student research.

Congruent with the mission of the college to offer and maintain high quality, professional, career oriented undergraduate programs; the School is housed in a $247 million, 195,000 sq. ft. State-of-the- art Science building which contains two core research facilities: one in the area of cellular-molecular biology and advanced imaging and the other in analytical chemistry.

We aim to refine and amplify our research profile and to integrate our research capacity into our undergraduate curriculum. We are decreasing our faculty to student ratio so as to develop a critical mass for research, and to increase our mentoring capacity. The school has hired several research–active faculty and two core facility managers in recent years and it plans to hire several more research– active faculty in fast growing disciplines.
