Meeting on the steps of the Memorial Union - the Department of Integrative Biology celebrated their new name.  

In attendance were members of the inaugural undergraduate IB class and the IB Faculty & Staff.  The Dean of the College of Science, Sastry Pantula, briefly addressed those gathered and commended the unit for its outstanding reputation with teaching and research.  Virginia Weis (IB Department Chair) discussed what the new name signified for our unit - highlighting that this new moniker better reflects the true nature of 21rst century biological research and better reflects the new structure of our unit, which is now the departmental home for both the OSU Zoology and Biology Majors.

 

Short Title: 
Zoology Becomes Integrative Biology
