Department of Chemistry



Prof. Kay Brummond (Department Chair) has been named the 2016 Diversity Catalyst Lecturer.

July 29, 2016 - 10:10am

The Open Chemistry Collaborative in Diversity Equity (OXIDE) is a 5-year, NSF/NIH/DoE-funded initiative to change the academic chemistry infrastructure from the top down by working with the chairs of leading research-active chemistry departments to reduce inequitable policies and practices that have historically led to disproportionate representation on academic faculties with respect to gender, race-ethnicity, disabilities, and sexual orientation. Read more about OXIDE

Starting in 2015, OXIDE has selected a Diversity Catalyst Lecturer annually to recognize departmental chairs that are leading exemplary efforts to advance diversity equity. 

Congratulations Kay!
