The founders of Grove City College believed that those classically educated in the sciences and liberal arts were uniquely equipped to preserve and advance the values of faith and freedom.
The Albert A. Hopeman Jr., School of Science, Engineering and Mathematics is comprised of the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics.
The School is named in honor of Hopeman, who served for 44 years on the Grove City College Board of Trustees and as President of the Board until his death in 1998. Hopeman left a deep imprint on the history and the future of Grove City College and is remembered for his loving attention to the College and its mission. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the College in 1961.
