A brief description of the program:

The Science programs at California State University Channel Islands (CI) have moved towards micro-scale procedures for teaching labs and continually evaluate options for lower hazard, lower volume or no hazard procedures for teaching. Biology has transitioned from toxic to non-toxic tissue fixatives. Chemistry and Biology have an informal material exchange. Surplus chemicals are donated rather than disposed and small quantities of unusual or one time use materials are borrowed to prevent unnecessary purchases.
