Our professors make amazing discoveries—all over the world and in our own backyard.
A biology professor discovered a fossil in China that suggested a new timeline for mammals on Earth and published his research in the journal Nature.
An anthropology professor, known for researching sunken ships, led students in a dig 20 miles from campus that unearthed 8,000-year-old artifacts.
On a 60-day expedition to Antarctica, a geoscience professor researched the marine ecology in seafloor core samples to gain information on glaciers and conditions for melting ice.
And that’s just tip of the iceberg, so to speak.
