The Department has a great variety of modern equipment and facilities and is one of the most research-intensive departments on campus. Students can pursue research during the academic year for credit, and stipends are generally provided for students conducting summer research. We encourage undergraduates at all levels to consider getting involved in research, but especially those who have completed at least two years of their chemistry and biochemistry curriculum.
Each spring, our undergraduates participate in an Undergraduate Poster Symposium. Twenty to twenty-five students generally present posters describing their research projects. Departmental faculty and many administrators, often including the President, Provost, and Dean, attend the event.
