Our Vision

The Department of Biological Sciences at Purdue University Calumet will maintain scientific leadership in Northwest Indiana and expand its recognition nationally and internationally. We will play a role in bridging education, research, and community development. The department will embrace experiential learning and will secure funding for teaching and research that enhances student success, strengthens infrastructure, and contributes to the scientific knowledge that builds a modern society.
