Teaching Philosophy

“In the Science Department, we embrace the spirit of study and community – two of the Dominican pillars of life. Our majors are supported by a vibrant learning community that combines the wholeness of a liberal arts education with a strong spiritual foundation. At Siena, you are part of an extended family that meets regularly inside and outside of the classroom. In addition to hands-on collaborative learning in our $1.9 million renovated science building, students also gather regularly for fieldtrips, special lectures, community service projects, or simply to study together. In the Science Department, you are supported not only by your fellow classmates, but also by your professors, who are your mentors, colleagues, advisors, and caring guides on your journey to academic fulfillment.”
