Support the Department of Chemistry
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Chemistry Department, founded in 1882, recently celebrated its 125th anniversary. Over the past century and a quarter the department has been a field leader in many different respects. From the hiring of the first female chemistry faculty member, Rachel Lloyed, to offering the first graduate program west of the Mississippi, the department has prided itself on maintaining a strong tradition of academic excellence.
While the chemistry department is boastful of its past accomplishments, the department in no way relies solely on these achievements to define its present and future as a department. The chemistry department currently has 26 faculty members who are responsible for doing research in eight different research divisions including chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, material chemistry, biotechnology, and environmental toxicology. Faculty, as well as undergraduate and graduate students, conduct research in all of these research divisions.
Private support has been vital to the success of the chemistry department. Without the support provided by alumni and friends, we would not be able to provide the quality educational opportunities that go above and beyond the traditional academic setting.
