-expand opportunities for faculty and students to pursue and respond to new interdisciplinary initiatives
-create a learning environment that promotes the development of knowledge and skills in the life sciences that will enable graduates to function as effective citizens and scientists in the 21st century
-raise public awareness of the life sciences at ASU and serve the public as a source of information regarding key life science issues.
