Department of Chemistry



The Department of Chemistry continues to be recognized as one of the University's leaders in research and instruction. Throughout the more than 100 years that Chemistry has been in existence on this campus, two characteristics have been shared by its faculty: enthusiasm for chemical research and excellence in teaching. The Department remains dedicated to these traditions as we enter the 21st century and open to all of the exciting new discoveries the future will bring.
