The mission of the IQ Center is to foster cross-disciplinary and quantitative approaches to inspire creativity and problem solving in teaching and research. The Center will help prepare undergraduates to become leaders in science and math careers, as well as to produce scientifically curious and literate leaders in society, regardless of career emphasis.
The center is home to sophisticated imaging and computational instruments, including confocal and scanning electron microscopes, and a powerful 3-D imaging lab. In addition, a Physical-Mechanical Lab and technology-rich teaching and meeting spaces serve to engage students in a flexible, active hands-on learning environment.
