Working in the Chemistry Department

student in labThe chemistry department encourages scholarship and fellowship among students, faculty and staff. A departmental seminar program sponsors weekly visits by scientists from other universities and research laboratories throughout the United States and the world. These seminars provide opportunities for faculty and students to meet and discuss science with the visitors. This program is supplemented by a student seminar program in which chemistry graduate students present their work to the department. Social activities include the department’s fall picnic, spring golf tournament and annual awards luncheon.
