It's time to build a foundation for continued excellence (graphic.)

This is the world's preeminent college for the chemical sciences. But we can't rest on our laurels — or our laureates. Now is the time to establish a strong foundation to continue our valuable work, and to keep pushing forward even further.

The College of Chemistry's Foundation for Excellence Campaign seeks to do exactly that. By securing a greater, more sustainable level of financial strength, our College can enhance its excellence in every area — from providing our students with an exceptional education and experience, to modernizing our classrooms, advising centers, and laboratories, to supporting our student's and faculty's pursuits and passions.

Through three-year, leadership-level commitments of greater than $1,000*, we will more than double our College's core annual fund support to over $2.5 Million.

* Graduates of the last decade qualify at $250+
