Department of Chemistry Mission Statement
The Department of Chemistry advances the intellectual and personal development of every student in our broad chemistry community within the liberal arts. Mentored by faculty who are passionate teachers, active researchers, and committed advisors, students develop the fundamental chemical knowledge, technical skills, critical thinking, and independence needed to address complex problems through science at the molecular level. Our emphasis on collaborative and interdisciplinary learning inspires our students to be active participants, clear communicators, and responsible citizens who apply their education across a broad spectrum of experiences.
