Are you teaching a laboratory course? The Chemistry Instructional Support Services staff provides support to all department classrooms and laboratories. We support everything that’s required in the laboratories from chemicals and glassware to equipment and instrumentation. We actively engage with faculty to make the labs as effective as possible whether that’s providing supplies and equipment or working on ways to implement changes or totally new curriculum into the lab.
We support the activities of outreach programs and fully support classroom demonstrations by doing them for you or supplying the necessary components for you to do them yourself.
For any services or support, contact the Lab Manager, Jim Vollmers.
