Mission



The mission of the Center is to discover, preserve, and interpret life through time.

The Center's mission will be achieved by:

  • Conducting research that enhances our understanding of life through time;

  • Presenting original research findings through national and international outletsĀ (e.g. meetings and peer-reviewed publications);

  • Seeking and obtaining external funding to support such research;

  • Assisting in student (both undergraduate and graduate) research and education;

  • Assisting other ETSU Departments with educational and outreach programs (e.g. ETSU and General Shale Brick Natural History Museum & Visitors Center).
