Advising for the health professions

Students interested in all health professions, regardless of their major, are able to go to one central location in Jordan Hall to seek advising and information: The Center for Health Professions, which houses a director to guide students who seek research possibilities.

Museum of Biodiversity

The herbarium is used for teaching and research in the study of botany, ecology, evolution, biodiversity and conservation, regional and global environmental change, genetics, natural products chemistry, archeology, and anthropology, to name a few. The new museum will allow more undergrad and grad students to experience a vast array of naturally occurring substances--some of which may hold the key to new discoveries in drug treatments for diseases such as cancer.
