Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences
Dean: Philip P. Reeder, Ph.D.
The School was created in 1994 as a result of the separation 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 School offers undergraduate and graduate programs and includes the Center for Environmental Research and Education, and the Forensic Science and Law Program.
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.
