Science Professor and Student

Science & Technology

I was one of the first students to receive a Henson Scholarship here at Salisbury. I probably would not have an academic career without it.

Henson School of Science & Technology

Through the Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology, students can put their inquisitive natures and analytical skills to good use. They can learn to use applied robotics or 3-D printing for engineering, GIS for disaster management and mitigation, and clean energy alternatives or stem cells to improve and save lives.  Alumnus and Dean Michael Scott says that the research he did as an undergraduate at SU led him to get a graduate degree, which led him to be a faculty member. He sees the Henson School having the same impact on so many SU students today.

The Henson School provides an outstanding, student-centered environment in which expert faculty empower students with knowledge and skills in majors including biology, chemistry, computer science, Earth science, geography, mathematics, physics, and urban and regional planning. Our graduate programs include applied biology, geographic information systems management and mathematics education. We take pride in recruiting diverse faculty and students and providing exceptional learning experiences beyond the classroom in field and laboratory settings. We also cultivate and maintain strong connections with employers and post-graduate programs to provide our students with successful and rewarding career trajectories.

Campaign Priorities & Initiatives

Through the Campaign for Salisbury University, the Henson School of Science and Technology seeks to:

  • Expand access to high-impact practices to support student success and develop a support program for pre-medical students.
  • Improve or launch new academic programs and attract and retain high-quality, diverse faculty.
  • Improve outreach related to science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM) disciplines.
  • Enable and encourage local Delmarva students to choose SU for science and support science for local economic development.
