Inside and outside the classroom
Elmhurst Science, Technology and Mathematics (STM) has more than 800 undergraduate and graduate students in six departments: Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Computer Science and Information Systems, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology study. Graduates of the Faculty choose a variety of pathways after graduation, from careers in the health sciences (such as medicine, dentistry and pharmacy) to graduate school to careers in industry.
The school also has more than 40 outstanding full-time teachers who, like their students, excel in and out of the classroom.
The school has 13 recipients of the prestigious President’s Award for Teaching Excellence. Faculty frequently publish in nationally recognized journals, including Science and Nature. STM faculty also played a leadership role in securing the University’s five major external grants, most of which include funding to create more research and learning opportunities for students.
