  • Require examination of the ethical implications of possible solutions and the decision making process
  • Develop an understanding of the basic community of all scientific disciplines which allows the knowledge and skills to be used for improvement of humankind’s condition

As a learning community, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics strives to accomplish the following:

  • Develop informed learners through traditional and innovative classroom and laboratory experiences
  • Engage students in research, experiential, and service activities which strengthen their professional capabilities to meet societal needs
  • Empower students to become lifelong learners and responsible leaders in their fields

The college creates an environment in which faculty members and students are expected to

  • Contribute to new knowledge through research, and communicate their results to the scientific community by participating in conferences and publishing in peer-reviewed journals
  • Serve as a scientific resource to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by lending their expertise to educational, industrial, and governmental institutions through service and consulting activities
  • Increase the overall appreciation of science, and highlight the leadership role of Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the local, regional, and global scientific communities.

The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics provides an environment for students and faculty that allows them to maximize their opportunities for learning, research, service, and further development, independent of their religious, ethnic, or racial background.
