The student / teacher ratio

The unique combination of a liberal arts college with a research university encourages our professors to value teaching as much as research. Ninety percent of our courses are taught by faculty members, and the student to faculty ratio is 6:1. Most of our faculty also live in the neighborhood surrounding the University, a rarity for an urban university and a great resource for our academic community. Don’t be surprised to see your professors at the park, in line at the grocery store, or signing books after class at the local bookstore

The College Houses

The program I want to go

The program I want go to is science.I want to do science because The Women in the Physical Sciences Committee has been formed to develop and implement strategies to enhance the representation and advancement of women at the graduate, postdoctoral and faculty levels. Our vision is a division where all faculty, academic staff and graduate students find a thriving, supportive intellectual community that is committed to help each member realize his or her full career potential. As a division focused on scholarly excellence, our objectives include the implementation of creative and tailored strategies that will accomplish the following goals:
  1. To strengthen within our culture those values and procedures that support equality of opportunity and honor diversity of opinion in the pursuit of knowledge
  2. To develop targeted mentoring, training, climate interventions and support mechanisms to encourage all physical sciences faculty, academic staff and graduate students to attain their full career potential.
  3. To develop recruitment and retention strategies that will enhance the representation of women and minorities in all academic ranks in the PSD.
  4. To expand our efforts to identify women and minorities with leadership potential and provide them with opportunities to participate in governance within the division and the wider University.
