Facilities, Outreach and Resources
Research and outreach are key to the mission in the College of Natural and Applied Sciences. Faculty and students have direct access to numerous labs and centers located on and off campus. These facilities are great opportunities for students to gain hands-on research experience as well as work alongside seasoned faculty in their area of interest.
Hours and availability do vary for each facility and center. View each facility's page for more details.
Temple Hall is the primary home for CNAS on the Missouri State campus. In Spring 2013, a new vivarium was added with a particular emphasis on both aquatic and terrestrial animals of varying species. The addition allows for faculty, staff and students to carry out research on mammalian species while providing a new aquatics facility to house research with fish and mussels.
In addition to these research centers, below you will find a listing of the teaching laboratories used in CNAS.
