College of Science and Mathematics
Driven by Discovery


As is the theme for all of us, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact teaching and mentorship in the College of Science and Mathematics. However, thanks to the ingenuity and creativity of our faculty, we have found new ways to engage with our students. Through virtual classrooms, digital conferences and socially-distanced lab sessions, we have worked tirelessly to ensure our undergraduates continue to drive scientific discovery. The video above highlights the ways CSM student research has changed in response to the pandemic.

Your contribution to the Brakke/Mason Endowment for Undergraduate Research will directly support student-led research projects and enable our professors to continue their mentorship from afar. We truly appreciate any donation you are able to give, as it demonstrates your commitment to the CSM and all of our future scientists.


Brakke Mason Endowment

Join Dr. Brakke and Ms. Mason in the continued support of science and mathematics at James Madison University.
