The College of Natural Sciences underwent a comprehensive strategic-planning process in 2012-13 to identify and establish the strategic priorities of the College and our departments.  This process culminated in our CNS Strategic Plan.  Our on-going and new initiatives are driven by three primary objectives from this strategic plan:  Develop Leaders, Promote Discovery and Create Impact.  Progress on these on-going and new initiatives is documented in the following annual reports.
