Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences
The Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences serves students by providing a high-quality education that emphasizes the synergy between teaching and research, and benefits society by advancing scientific knowledge.
The School was created in 1994 as a result of the division of the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Physics from the former College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. In 1995, the School was named in honor of the Bayer Corporation, which chose to support the School for its outstanding accomplishments in both the natural and environmental sciences. The Forensic Science and Law Program was incorporated into the School in 2003, and the Biotechnology program was added in 2008. The School includes the Center for Environmental Research and Education and the Center for Biotechnology.
