Methodist University has a firm stance on training especially in the laboratory setting. All faculty, staff, and students must undergo laboratory safety training every semester. This safety training course is required for all classes that are taught in a laboratory setting for Chemistry, Biology, Art, Nursing, Athletic Training, and some Theater classes.
Most professors assign this training as a quiz or homework assignment.
Methodist University has become known for being an advocate in the field of green and sustainable education. Our laboratories are no exception to this fact. From Chemistry, Biology, to Art and Theater, our University-wide Green Laboratory policies keep our campus green and sustainable.
