Transformation is an integral part of High Point University’s growth mindset. The Wanek School of Natural Sciences reflects the amazing growth the university has experienced in recent years. The $65 million, 128,000-square-foot facility opened this fall and features four stories of innovative lab and classroom space, as well as the Culp Planetarium. Students in biology, chemistry, physics, biochemistry and neuroscience are already learning in the facility’s new state-of-the-art laboratories. These undergraduate programs complement HPU’s graduate programs in pharmacy, physical therapy and physician assistant studies. These programs are also led by health care professionals such as Dr. Angela Bauer, dean of the Wanek School of Natural Sciences; Dr. Brett Woods, chair of the Department of Biology; Dr. Brian Augustine, chair of the Department of Chemistry; and Dr. Briana Fiser, chair of the Department of Physics. These faculty have years of research experience in their prospective fields. Learn more about the Wanek School of Natural Sciences in the slideshow below.
