The Department of Chemistry’s commitment continues to focus on student-centered learning activities and your financial support is appreciated more than ever.


Department funds from alumni, faculty, staff, emeriti, and friends greatly assist in many of the program costs for chemistry and biochemistry. Our summer undergraduate research program (CRISP) continues to be one of the most successful in the country and this summer will be our 45th year.


The department has many state-of-the-art scientific instruments for training students and conducting research. The cost of operating, maintaining and replacing these instruments is a continuing expense. Each year we are fortunate to be able to offer scholarships to several excellent students to help them flourish, including both new and continuing students. However, there are always additional deserving students that our current funds are not able to support.


Our annual Robert J. Morris Chemistry Symposium provides students and faculty access to a prominent researcher in chemistry each spring that adds to what goes on in classrooms and labs. As a fundamental science, there are unexpected expenses that arise that need attention so students have the best experience possible.


Thank you very much not only for your generosity but also for your commitment to the department and our students.
