Seminars and Lectureships

The Chemistry Department prides itself in hosting scholars from around the country to talk about their research.

Our seminars are held most Fridays from 12 to 1:30 p.m. in Owens Science Hall room 251. Over the past five years, we have hosted over 50 faculty from 30 institutions in 14 states. These meetings allow our students and others to learn about chemistry from researchers in an intimate setting. These seminars also provide a venue for our senior students to present their own work to the St. Thomas community. We value this atmosphere so much that students always get to ask the first questions! 

Beginning in 2012 with a grant from the Jean Dreyfus Boissevain foundation, we have hosted an annual lectureship with a prominent scholar in the chemical sciences. These events are designed to introduce the student body, alumni, and the public to the fronteirs of chemistry. Information on upcoming lectureships can be found here as well.

Both of these series are open to the public. We encourage the St. Thomas community, alumni, and others to join us.
