The IWU Division of Natural Sciences faculty have excellent educational backgrounds from institutions such as Purdue University, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Illinois, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University. Some professors also have diverse employment backgrounds in government laboratories and industry.

Most importantly, our science faculty are sincere followers of Christ who believe that all truth is God's truth. They endeavor to integrate their faith into their science teaching and provide each student with a road map to find God's calling within a scientific career.
