Elements of Success

When you make a gift of $1,000 or more to the chemistry program, you will be invited to peruse the department's Elements of Success Periodic Table and select an available element plaque to be inscribed with your name.


Chemistry Learning Center (CLC)

Chemistry Learning Center (CLC)

Your support goes a long way in advancing students' academic success. Students who regularly attend appointments or actively participate in the Chemistry Learning Center typically earn one-half to one full grade higher than students who don't. Your gift could make the difference of a student's eureka moment in chemistry.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research

Gifts support undergraduate student research. Our undergraduate students work in faculty labs, gaining valuable hands-on experience that translates to technical lab skills. All department faculty provide opportunities for undergraduate research and encourage the members of their research teams to take an active role in handling instruments and operating research-grade equipment in the lab.

Graduate Research

Graduate Research

Our graduate students are at the forefront of research in multiple areas of chemistry; from biochemistry to chemical synthesis, they are pushing boundaries and making new discoveries in each of our research groups. Gifts support graduate student research, travel, and professional development activities.

Giving Opportunities

Support Our Elements of Success

Your gifts directly enhance the education of our students, who are the elements of our success. Monetary gifts of any size go toward attracting creative, world-class faculty, supporting the creation of new and innovative research programs, creating advanced labs and equipment, and funding opportunities for hands-on experiences. These elements are necessary to provide tomorrow’s chemists with the education and resources to create a sustainable future for all of us.

Ways to Give

Elements of Success Fund

The Elements of Success fund is used to enhance the success of the chemistry department. Educational and research activities are supported, along with other departmental priorities.

An element on the Elements of Success Periodic Table is awarded to donors who designate a gift of $1,000 or more to any of the chemistry department's funds.
