Dean's Welcome

Look out world, here we come! The College of Science and Mathematics is six years old. Brave, intrepid and then some.

We are pioneers of maximum on the trail we blaze.  Moving forward together into our seventh year, CSM is committed to sustaining and enhancing a supportive and inspiring undergraduate and Master’s level educational environment where excellent instruction, interdisciplinary and collaborative research, innovation, and creative endeavors thrive.

We are building up a head of steam on the trail we blaze. We begin the academic year with more than 60 tenure track faculty, nearly 50% more than six years ago. The number of CSM majors has doubled, now more than 2100 and, at 2800 FTES, the College enrolls 25% of total campus enrollment.  

We live where others merely dream on the trail we blaze. Our region recognizes CSM as a resource for innovation and a resilient STEM workforce. CSM faculty are reflective practitioners of teaching, who offer curriculum that adapts to real world challenges and responds to regional needs. We develop responsive, high quality programs such as cybersecurity, EngiBeering™, wild fire science, software engineering and electrical engineering.

Changing legend into fact, we will ride into history. All will be revealed on the trail we blaze. CSM faculty are passionate, productive, nationally recognized scholars who engage our students in interdisciplinary and collaborative research, innovation, and creative endeavors that support and enrich the intellectual and economic life of our region and the state.

The trail we blaze is a road uncharted. No place for the traveler to be faint-hearted. CSM is helping to build great communities, prepare tomorrow’s leaders and solve critical issues. Join us on the trail we blaze.

                         CSM Is Where Great Futures Begin!
