Welcome to the Wright State University Chemistry Department website. I am very excited about the recent developments within the department and how this has positioned us for further success. Recently, we have renovated completely the vast majority of our teaching laboratories and all of our research and administrative spaces. The result is a cutting-edge environment for research and teaching. The recent addition of two faculty members and more than fifteen new instruments for teaching and research has bolstered further our capabilities, especially in the nanotechnology and computational arenas. Coupled with our long-standing strengths in applied areas such as macromolecular and environmental chemistries and our strong commitment to the traditional core areas, this provides a unique learning environment.
With 16 faculty, 4 support staff members, 80-100 undergraduate and 30-40 M.S. students annually, the department is sufficiently large to offer a current experience to our students, but small enough to provide an environment where each student is recognized as an individual.
I encourage you explore our website and to visit if you are in the area. I’d be delighted to show you around and tell you more about our programs, faculty and students.
Dr. David Grossie, Department Chair
