Chair's Message

Are you a problem solver? Do you like to unravel a good mathematical or technological mystery? These are skills that can make you invaluable in today's high tech workforce where Math and Computing jobs consistently rank at the top of the list of best jobs in America. The Department of Mathematics and Computing is the perfect place to develop your problem solving skills, prepare for a career or just attack one of the intellect's most extreme sports.

The faculty members in our department truly have a passion for teaching. Our faculty enjoy getting to know our students and they are committed to teaching and fostering student's academic development. Should you decide to join us, you will be assigned a faculty advisor who will monitor your progress and assist you in making good decisions concerning your class schedule each semester.

The Department of Mathematics and Computing is housed in historic Laura Lander Hall, which is named in tribute to the wife of Lander University's founder and first president, Samuel Lander. Laura Lander Hall opened in 1904 as Greenwood Hall. In 1993, the interior of Greenwood Hall was totally renovated; and boasts state of the art classrooms, computer laboratories and office space. The exterior of the building was untouched in the renovation and proudly features Lander University's trademark bell tower.

Dedicated faculty, small classes and strong academic programs are just a few of the assets that the Department of Mathematics and Computing has to offer. I sincerely hope that we will have the opportunity to acquaint you with many others. If I can be of further assistance to you now, or at any time during the application process, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I hope that you will allow Lander University to help you attain your goal of a college education.
