Science faculty at PLU are dedicated to helping students find their vocation.
Open office doors are a common sight in Rieke and student accessibility to faculty is a hallmark of a PLU science education. In addition to being dedicated teachers, science faculty are also productive scholars whose research continues to attract funding from sources such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Research Corporation and the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust.
Faculty write widely-used textbooks and frequently publish in popular and peer-reviewed literature. Updates to the research facilities in Rieke will help ensure that science faculty can continue to make distinctive contributions to the broader scientific community.
