Mission Statement

The Department of Chemistry advances the intellectual and personal development of every student in our broad chemistry community within the liberal arts.  We recognize that good science requires diversity, which we promote through inclusive practices in the classroom and research laboratory.  Faculty are passionate teachers, invested mentors, and active researchers who are committed advocates for inclusion.  Students develop the fundamental chemical knowledge, technical skills, communication abilities, and critical thinking to become independent scholars.  Our emphasis on collaborative and interdisciplinary learning inspires our students to be clear communicators, culturally competent citizens, and engaged leaders who address complex global problems through science at the molecular level
