Our Mission

To promote an understanding and appreciation for the intricacies of the Biological Sciences to equip our scholars to be faithful stewards of creation.

Our Vision

  • Prepare students for careers and graduate training by providing undergraduate and graduate programs that support both major and non-major students.
  • Cultivate a climate that “seeds and encourages” growth in academics, research, social, community, and spiritual areas.
  • Support experiential learning and research to empower our students to develop an independent mind-set that will set them apart as leaders in their field to solve health, environmental, and global issues.
  • Enhance our community on personal and global levels through measured initiatives that will teach and develop health care professionals, scientists, teachers and mentors of the future.

It is an honor to serve as chair of Biological Sciences. We have a stellar faculty core who love to be with students in the roles of instructor, mentor, research overseer, career advisor, and friend. Our department has seen wonderful success in terms of our students matriculating to professional programs, graduate programs, and jobs, and we are enthused when we get to join students in making decisions, planning for the future, or sharing life or career highlights. We look forward to others joining our programs and seeking to “live your purpose” in the Biological Science programs.

Danielle Nelson

My time at CBU and with Biological Sciences was immensely worthwhile. An abundance of mentors guided my growth and prepared me to enter medicine. I built genuine, enduring friendships while navigating challenges. I learned more deeply that God’s purpose for me is simple: love Him and love people. I plan to do just that as a physician.
