Commitment to Balanced Excellence
The Department is strongly committed to providing a balanced program of teaching, research and service. All full-time tenured or tenure track faculty have an active research effort and are directing either undergraduates, graduate students, or both in scholarly activity. Many are actively involved in outreach programs designed to increase science awareness and interest in area pre-college youth. The Department has been featured in the American Chemical Society weekly magazine and in Chemical and Engineering News for its forefront activities in the enhancement of science education in our region.
