The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s College of Science and Technology provides a dynamic, hands-on approach to higher education opportunities, while fostering new and growing connections in the sciences for students, faculty and the community. It includes programs in Natural and Applied Sciences and Human Biology. The College has oversight over the nationally acclaimed Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI). Each adds to the rich history, environmental health and sustainability of the region, state and world. The College will continue its strong partnership with Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW-Green Bay), together preparing the next generation of students who dream of careers in the health sciences.
The College of Science and Technology offers a diversity of majors and minors in biology, human biology, chemistry, environmental science, geoscience, mathematics, physics, environmental engineering technology, electrical engineering technology, and mechanical engineering technology. Faculty in the College are accomplished teachers and scholars who provide high quality instruction and hands-on teaching and research experiences to students in laboratory and field settings. The College has consistently obtained funding from local, state and federal sources to support campus and community based research projects.
The College supports a seminar series in Natural and Applied Science and several student organizations, while also providing numerous named scholarships for students. The state-of-the art laboratory and research facilities include a scanning electron microscope and human cadavers. In addition to the laboratory and research facilities associated with Human Biology and Natural and Applied Sciences, the College also includes the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute which both provide research and internship opportunities. The College has a partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin, with faculty from Human Biology providing instruction in the Medical College of Wisconsin curriculum.
Students in the College of Science and Technology will have the opportunity to:
- Gain important knowledge and skills pertinent to their chosen field of study
- Develop critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills
- Engage in hands-on teaching and research experiences
- Utilize modern laboratories and equipment
- Learn in an interdisciplinary environment that promotes diversity and inclusion
- Become a complete student and citizen by participating in internships, travel courses, and other extracurricular activities
- Fully prepare themselves for their next professional ambition – whether it be employment, further credentialing, or graduate/clinical education.
Ways You Can Help Our College and Our Students
The College of Science and Technology was established at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay on July 1, 2016, during the transition to a new four-college model advanced by Chancellor Gary Miller. The College of Science and Technology includes undergraduate programs in biology, chemistry, engineering technology, environment science, geoscience, human biology, mathematics and physics; graduate programs in environmental science and policy and the collaborative on-line program in sustainable management; and also includes the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute. At its core, the College of Science and Technology is focused on:
- People – we strive to provide the best educational experience for our students, with our high quality faculty and facilities providing relevant laboratory and research opportunities.
- Programs – the majors offered in CST are in high demand fields, with human biology being one of the largest majors on campus and rapid growth being experience in engineering technology (electrical, mechanical and environmental).
- Partnerships – faculty and students in CST benefit from ongoing collaborations with business, industry, government, non-profits and other regional educational institutions such as the Medical College of Wisconsin.
As the founding Dean of the College of Science and Technology and a fellow UWGB alumni (91’ and 93”), I would encourage you to consider making a financial contribution that will allow us to expand the educational opportunities available to our students now and in the future. Thank you for considering this important request.
