The Department of Chemistry and Physics has dynamic and energetic faculty members, who have specifically chosen to teach and conduct research in an undergraduate setting. They stress understanding of principles, critical thinking, communication skills, and strategies for effective problem-solving.
In addition to being dedicated teachers in the classroom, our faculty members are actively involved in directing undergraduate research, an essential component of a quality undergraduate degree program in the sciences. Many opportunities exist for students to conduct cutting-edge research with a faculty mentor.
Members of the faculty have published the results of their research with undergraduates in peer-reviewed literature, have been successful in securing extramural funding for their research and curriculum development efforts, and often take their students to national meetings in order to present the results of their research.
