Chemistry faculty have dedicated themselves to mentoring and advising undergraduate students in and out of the classroom. They have received Furman’s highest teaching and advising award for faculty ten times — six for meritorious teaching, and four for meritorious advising.
As active researchers who receive funding from national research centers like the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, our faculty and staff provide undergraduate students at all levels an opportunity to conduct intensive summer research. They lead individual laboratories and work with students one-on-one on meaningful research projects. Through this collaboration, our students are exposed to modern instrumentation and have the opportunity to co-author papers for publication.
