Historical Note:

The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) is a fairly new college in its current state, but it has a long tradition at the university. In the early days of the university, the components of NSM were part of the College of Arts and Sciences. In the 1970s, this college was divided into the College of Humanities, Fine Arts, and Communication (HFAC), the College of Social Sciences (SOS), and the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM).

More recently, the College has built a strong reputation in health care and energy research. [1]
