Crimson LCrimson Laureate Societyaureate Society

The Crimson Laureate Society is a new group dedicated to promoting and advancing science and mathematics at the University of Utah.  Members advocate for science in the community, make their voices heard, and have access to exclusive benefits and recognition opportunities.

 If you are passionate about chemistry, you know that chemical research drives the development of molecular processes that are important in energy, medicine, and our world.  The Crimson Laureate Society is a unique opportunity to share this passion with like-minded individuals and show your dedication to upholding the value that the chemical sciences provide to our community.

 Your gift of $100 or more to the Department of Chemistry will grant you full membership in the Crimson Laureate Society this year, while your contribution will serve to strengthen the future of chemistry education and research at the University of Utah.
