Our Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide a curriculum and environment that enables students to achieve a level of knowledge of chemistry or biochemistry appropriate for their chosen field or liberal arts education. We provide students with the foundation in chemistry and biochemistry necessary for their pursuit of careers in industry, research, education, engineering, health professions or other interdisciplinary fields. Our courses encourage active participation and critical understanding of safety issues and subject matter in both courses and laboratories. We strive to provide our faculty with career and research opportunities for their scholarly development and provide the college and community with a resource of knowledge and professional contribution.
