Making an impact - together!
There are no simple solutions to complex, real-world problems. Complicated challenges impact communities across the country and around the world. Especially now.
The students and faculty of the College of Integrated Science and Engineering are committed to addressing real-world problems by applying science, emerging technologies, creative engineering, and an understanding of human society to find solutions for real people and the communities where they live and work.
While the pandemic set us back a bit, our on-campus classes and projects have resumed.
- We offered our first-ever study abroad trip over winter break to address water scarcity and coral reef restoration in Costa Rica (story coming soon) and we will be resuming study abroad trips this summer.
- Computer science is continuing to build relationships with the greater Harrisonburg community by offering young girls an opportunity to learn about technology through DIGITAL.
- School of Integrated Sciences faculty and students are working across disciplines on the new Edible Forest Garden – a unique and innovative learning opportunity to bring awareness to sustainable food production and nutrition.
- A group of our engineering students is gearing up to compete in a NASA rocket launch that will open doors in aerospace engineering.
These projects are made possible by donors like you. Your continued support is more critical than ever! Please make your gift to one of your favorite student funds.
Supporting a student now will enable a lifetime of innovation and opportunity. Together we can make a powerful impact!
