Changing Our World for the Better

The College of Chemistry catapulted UC Berkeley to scientific preeminence in the early twentieth century, and it remains a transformative force to this day. The groundbreaking work of Professor Jennifer Doudna, the 2020 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, attests to the College’s continued excellence and influence. Moreover, US News & World Report has repeatedly recognized the College’s accomplishments, most recently awarding the College of Chemistry the #1 position in the ranking of best global universities for chemistry in 2021.

The College’s outstanding students, faculty, graduates, and network of global partners are committed to working together on the development of advanced materials, innovative healthcare, renewable energy, and the protection and propagation of the world’s supply of food, water, and clean air. In order to address the pressing issues of today, and to carry its successes into the future, the College must expand and modernize its teaching and research facilities.
