The Mission of the Department of Chemistry is to provide:
1. An appreciation for the concepts and applications of Chemistry in everyday life for majors of all disciplines.
2. A firm background of Chemistry upon which students in pre-professional programs can link concepts of Biology, Physics, and Mathematics.
3. The ability to apply concepts and analyze data in Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Biochemistry for Chemistry majors. The goal is to provide the resources necessary for success upon graduation, independent of the chosen career path.
4. An environment in which all students are encouraged to learn, question, and explore individually, and as part of a team, while under the guidance of the faculty.
