In recent years the Human Anatomy Laboratory has found a home at the basement of Collins Hall. Our students have the privilege of working with cadavers, a fact that has enhanced their educational experience, both at Willamette and beyond.
Faculty from the Departments of Psychology and Exercise Science have led the effort to create truly interdisciplinary, integrated, introductory science courses and were recently rewarded with a grant from the National Science Foundation. The funds allowed the purchase of six new Biopac data acquisition systems and associated software and hardware to be housed in the newly established iScience Laboratory. This laboratory is a cornerstone of the new Human Sciences Initiative launched recently by the two departments.
