The Division of Natural Sciences is home to the National Center for Forensic Science, while the division of Social and Behavioral Sciences includes the Nicholson School of Communication, one of the largest schools of communication in the nation.[5] The college is also home to the Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government.
