Spring / Summer Newsletter

Teri Odom Headshot

Welcome to our Spring / Summer newsletter. Light is breaking through here—and we hope this is happening where you are, too! Our community has endured much since the pandemic took hold 15 months ago, and we’ve learned how we can grow and make Chemistry stronger. We continued to celebrate the excellence of our faculty, students, and staff. I look forward to the next academic year, when we will welcome four new junior faculty; decide how to best advance our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts; learn how to integrate positive changes from our time being remote; and navigate new curriculum offerings in organic chemistry. Enjoy these latest happenings!
