Mission Statement

Mission Statement of the Chemistry Center: The Chemistry Center provides a positive space where students can interact with Chemistry course material in unique and meaningful ways. Student learning will be facilitated by interactions with Chemistry Center instructors and with peers, focusing on both cognitive and affective domains.

The Chemistry Center HAS MOVED*!

New Location: Winston 38

The Chemistry Center will open on Sunday, September 10th

Operating Hours: Sunday-Thursday 5-9 PM

*During Salem Hall renovation (Academic Year 2017-2018), the Chemistry Center will be in the basement of the Biology building, Winston Hall. Simply go through the main doors, find the nearest staircase and go down one floor. You will find a long hallway with tables and chairs and whiteboards. Winston 38 will be the official home of the Chemistry Center, but the surrounding hallway has many outlets and whiteboards for students to use.

Center Services

The Chemistry Center instructors are both Chemistry graduate students and undergraduate students who are majoring in Chemistry. Instructors will provide assistance in learning chemical concepts, problem-solving strategies, and answer general questions. They will provide students with additional learning resources and limited help using digital homework platforms.

The Chemistry Center instructors WILL NOT answer problems from homework assignments, take-home exams, or any problem sets that will be graded. However, they can work on similar types of problems provided by the student.

Drop-in tutoring for LECTURE material will be available Sunday-Thursday from 5-9 PM for CHM 111, CHM 123, and CHM 223.
