College of Sciences Dean's Office

Welcome Message

Welcome to the Walter Maxwell Gibson College of Sciences at Southern Utah University!

We are dedicated to supporting students as they learn and develop their scientific knowledge, critical thinking skills, collaborative abilities, and communication skills. We emphasize hands-on and experiential learning, giving students an opportunity to engage with challenging concepts as they develop their scientific knowledge and abilities. With our unique location in Southern Utah, we support a wide variety of centers, laboratories, and other educational facilities that provide opportunities for field work and undergraduate research. Our highly qualified faculty are invested in their students' success, mentoring students and helping them to prepare for meaningful academic and professional careers in biology, chemistry, physics, geosciences, and environmental science.

If you are interested in exploring and understanding natural phenomena - from molecular interactions to geological forces to interrelationships between living organisms in complex ecosystems - then SUU’s College of Sciences is the place for you.
