Why does the College of Science at Benedictine University enjoy the reputation it does?
It's because of our alumni, like Advocate Christ Medical Center resident and University of Illinois medical school graduate Michael T. Stanek (B.S. Biology/Chemistry, 2010), and Muzamil Arshad (B.S. Physics, 2010), an M.D./Ph.D. candidate at Wayne State University School of Medicine, who matriculated to some of the top graduate and medical schools throughout the country.
Our award-winning faculty, like former chair of Biological Sciences Allison K. Wilson, Ph.D., who was presented the Distinguished Faculty Award for her work in securing a $1.2 million Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Grant from the National Science Foundation.
Benedictine's historically deep ties to the regional science and technology community creates opportunities for students to obtain research internships in local industry or government labs.
Never before in human history have the frontiers of science advanced in a more relentless pace. The latest scientific advances only make more urgent, rather than less, the need for developing future leaders who are scientifically informed, broadly educated, and capable of making value-based decision to harness the power of science in service of humanity.
