As a part of the University’s Strategic Plan the Department of Chemistry places a priority on community engagement.

One pillar of the University’s strategic plan is to be a university engaged with the community. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry actively engages in events ranging from demonstrations and classroom visits to workshops and field trips (We’ve even been known to put on a performance). If you are interested in having our department work with your organization, reach out to us through email.
