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 leader in diverse areas from computational chemistry and molecular dynamics simulation to synthetic organic chemistry, mass spectrometry, NMR, surface science, chromatography and separations science to chemical biology and materials design, fabrication and study. From the hiring of the first female chemistry faculty member, Rachel Lloyd in the late 1800's, 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 proud of its past accomplishments, the department is particularly excited about the present and future, especially the potential that resides in the cadre of young professors, roughly half of the tenure track faculty, hired in the past decade.
