The Franciscan Institute for Science and Health (FISH) is an initiative of Franciscan University of Steubenville with a mission to provide real-world experience and hands-on training to every Franciscan undergraduate science major and Engineering Dual-Degree student.
This exciting initiative stems from our desire to more fully prepare our science and engineering students. FISH takes them beyond the educational basics of a traditional college education to a more complete understanding of future career choices and opportunities based on personal experience. This initiative provides a unique educational experience and differentiates our graduates as they head out into the world.
FISH, an institute of Franciscan University launched in the Spring 2013, a not for profit organization, is designed to seek out, to develop, to promote, and to financially help sustain undergraduate internship, research, and professional educational opportunities. The organization is co-directed by Dr. Daniel Kuebler and Dr. Jeffrey J. Rohde and is modeled after the Franciscan Institute for World Health but with a broader mission and scope. FISH is designed to support advanced, undergraduate, educational experiences for Franciscan students across all of the sciences and engineering programs.
Support the research our students are doing through FISH by giving to the Science Fund.
