Mission and Strategic Plan

Mission Statement

The Department of Microbiological Sciences serves the local, national and international communities by teaching the concepts and applications of microbiology in a student-centered environment and by using our unique expertise to explore novel research in microbiology.*

Our department values lifelong discovery, intellectual integrity, collegiality, and diversity.

The Department of Microbiological Sciences strives to provide a welcoming, inclusive, and safe learning environment for all our students. We celebrate the rich diversity of experiences and backgrounds each of us brings to NDSU, and we expect our students to interact with civility and to treat each other with respect. Valuing our differences opens learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom, resulting in a more rewarding education.
