School of Science

Centers + Initiatives

Monmouth University’s School of Science enhances the learning experiences of our students and extends opportunities to the broader community to engage in the sciences through its involvement with several centers and special programs.

Winter Bridge Program
Many first-year students arrive on campus confident in their abilities, only to find themselves doing very poorly in their introductory biology, chemistry or mathematics courses. The Winter Bridge Program is designed for first-year students who find themselves doing very poorly in their introductory biology, chemistry or mathematics courses. The program offers a two-day intensive set of workshop sessions targeted at giving these students help to enable them to succeed the second time through our courses. Participating students will work with School of Science faculty and with SoS Peer Mentors.

Urban Coast Institute
The Urban Coast Institute—a regional forum for the development and implementation of policies and programs that support healthy, productive, and resilient coastal ecosystems and communities—supports marine research and education, including hands-on learning experiences and career networking opportunities for Monmouth students.

Summer Research Program
High school and college students engage in a 12-week paid research experience, working on collaborative research projects under the supervision of School of Science faculty and staff.

Science, Society, and Sustainability Seminar Series
The Monmouth University School of Science and Urban Coast Institute will host the first Science, Society, and Sustainability Seminar Series in 2014-2015. The series will bring highly regarded experts to campus to engage students and the community in dialogue on critical aspects of sustainability. The Monmouth community and public are invited to attend the events. All events are free.

Program for the Acceleration in Computer Science Careers (PAC) for Minority Students
This free, 10-week program is open to minority students in the third through twelfth grades in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

Professional Development Programming for Students
The professional development programming at School of Science is tailored for students in science, mathematics and the technical professions to help each one prepare him/herself for the next steps in his/her career, be that a job, an internship or further study in graduate or professional school.

Peer Mentoring Program
The School of Science program in peer mentoring is designed to help students adjust to Monmouth University and to the School of Science by providing support from fellow students. The program is directed by Dean Catherine Duckett and Dr. Jeffrey Weisburg.

Dean’s Seminar
The annual School of Science Dean’s Seminar Series provides Monmouth University students, faculty, and staff, and the University community, with an opportunity to interact with leading scientists, educators, and policy makers in the sciences. Seminars are free and open to the public.
