Your donations have a direct impact on the science that will
find solutions for climate change, health care, and everyday materials.

Your contributions make a big difference, no matter how small. Thank you.
Our students contribute significantly to all these solutions--faculty member’s labs make the impact they do because these students work tirelessly. Scholarships make a huge difference in their quality of life as they contribute so much to the improvement of our daily lives.

Other ways to Support U Chemistry:

Initiated by a distinguished chemistry department alumnus, Jerry Murry, and other "Kecklings," to honor the memory of Diana Campbell who recently passed away, the staff award acknowledges the important role that our departmental support staff play in the graduate education and careers of our researchers. The award will be given to a staff member who meaningfully and consistently contributes to and supports graduate students in ways that go above and beyond their administrative duties. This is the first award that recognizes and rewards the significant impact our staff members have on the excellent quality of education and research in the department.
