The College of Agricultural, Life and Physical Sciences is a dynamic learning community of faculty, undergraduate students, and graduate students. This community is dedicated to the study of the physical and biological and information world. We promote the development of new knowledge bases in these areas of inquiry and the education of our students and the public about the tools of science and the discoveries being made daily both here at SIUC and in the broader community of sciences.
