"During March 2-5, 2020, students from the Chemistry Department's CH101 (Survey of Inorganic & Organic Chemistry) laboratories had the opportunity to interact with the personnel from the USA Simulation Program relating to Experiment #4 in their spring semester laboratory experiments. Approximately 215 students listened to Dr. Mike Jacobs, who is the Director of the program, for a 60-minute lecture on solutions, concentration gradients, and IV bags. Students were then able to setup IV bags on simulation patients while working with medical personnel from the USA Simulation Program. " - Richard O'Brien

Congratulations to Dr. Robert Barletta and Mrs. Diane Roe.  They have been appointed Associate Professor Emeritus and Instructor Emeritus, respectively, "in recognition of [their] achievements in teaching, in service to the University, in the generation of new knowledge through research and scholarship, and for serving as a consistently inspiring influence to students over a long period of time, as evaluated by [their] peers and the academic administrative officers of the University."

Congratulations to all five (5) Chemistry faculty who were recently recognized as Top Profs through the Sally Steadman Azalea Chapter of Mortar Board.  The event offers an opportunity for students to share how members of South impact their lives in a positive way through the areas of teaching, research, and service.  When looking at the number of academic units recognized, Chemistry had more faculty recognized than any other group on campus!
