Chemistry External Advisory Board

Pursuing enhancement strategies

We have formed a Chemistry External Advisory Board (CEAB) that 

  • advises us on academic, program, and strategic issues;
  • helps us with promotion and recognition; and
  • provides philanthropic support and assistance in seeking public and private financial support.

Leading scientists in their fields

Members of the CEAB are leading scientists from a variety of industries, and many are University of Minnesota and Department of Chemistry alumni.
