About the Seminar:

Research in chemistry, the central science, is profoundly engaged in addressing important global challenges related to health, energy, the environment, and climate change. The chemistry core curriculum ought to reflect newfound abilities to make, measure and model chemistry, and lay the foundation for transformative advancements by future chemists. For the last decade, discussions have percolated through the US chemistry community of how a modern chemical education could be implemented, particularly at a large state institution. In 2015 the CSU Chemistry Department agreed to “Create an ad hoc committee to look at revisions to our undergraduate curriculum with an emphasis on improving flexibility and emphasizing the ability of students to take different paths to their degrees”. Through the efforts of a number of people, we are in the process of implementing a revised chemistry major that addresses the 2015 charge. This seminar will provide a rationale for the changes and outline what CHEM 2.0 looks like for current and future students.
