About Science at Taylor

“We cannot fully declare the glory of God if we do not embrace science as a vast domain in which we can both see God’s glory and advance His Kingdom.”
- Ralph Winter, the late missiologist and Taylor grandparent, from “Frontiers in mission: discovering and surmounting barriers to the missio Dei”

In 1965, the Nussbaum Science Center was created for a campus of 1,100 students, of which approximately 120 were science majors.

Today Taylor has 2,065 students, of which 344 are science majors.

In 1965, Taylor had 13 faculty members working in science-related areas.

Today Taylor has 40 science faculty working in specialties like systems, environmental science and astrophysics on projects with institutions like NASA, Eli Lilly and World Vision.

Taylor University’s School of Natural and Applied Sciences has established a legacy defined by scholarship and discovery. As the first CCCU school to offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in environmental sciences, Taylor was – and still remains – on the cutting edge of stewardship efforts among peers.

In order for Taylor to sustain its legacy of discovery and success, it needed a facility that would provide the tools and space faculty and students need for research and innovation.

The Euler Science Complex enables Taylor University to attract and retain distinctive students and dedicated faculty, support innovative programs and continue to produce graduates who live their lives in service to God’s Kingdom:

“We want to fully enable our talented and dedicated students and faculty to do what our Lord has called them to do: to further His kingdom through science and related fields.”
– Dr. Mark Biermann, former Dean of the School of Natural and Applied Sciences

Taylor’s up-wind turbines face into the wind. Each has an anemometer & wind vane to find wind direction & speed.
