Faculty are committed
to enabling students in the study of chemistry while
engaging in issues of ethics and stewardship. Students
are taught that science is a process understood through
research methods, the findings of which must be communicated
well in both oral and written forms. Students are exposed
to the whole of science so they will be prepared for
graduate and professional programs as well as for the
workplace. Faculty encourage students to be involved
in research, practical training and experience either
on campus or at cooperative job training or internships.
The department seeks to prepare students to serve as
well-educated Christians in a secular world, engaging
in careful thought about the relationship of chemistry
to the Christian faith. Green is in and we are committed to teaching about and promoting green chemistry.
