Welcome to the School of Plant Sciences

We are glad that you found us! There are lots of wonderful things going on in our School; let me share just a few with you. Undergraduate education continues to be a priority for us. Faculty members are offering on-line courses as well as research and extension experiences and internships to undergraduates in our four majors (Plant Sciences, Sustainable Plant Systems, Applied Biotechnology, and Microbiology). Our graduate students are actively involved in instruction in the classroom and in cutting-edge research in the laboratory and the field. Our Extension and applied faculty are working to improve agricultural production in Arizona with programs that conserve natural resources. Our basic research faculty are discovering fundamental information about biological processes in plants and microbes and their interactions with each other and with the environment. Please learn more by exploring our site and don’t hesitate to contact us if we can answer any questions.
