Celebrating Prof. Wayne Gladfelter: Alumni Poster Session

Save the date for a gathering and poster session to honor Prof. Wayne Gladfelter's contributions and legacy in our department and beyond. Gladfelter group alumni will present posters from their career paths since leaving the university. Some have spent their entire career at one company or college, while others moved to work with start-ups or even to careers outside of science altogether. All members of the Chemistry community are welcome to join Prof. Gladfelter and his group, chat with alums about career paths, and enjoy hors d'oeuvres.

Wayne Gladfelter has been a member of the UMN Chemistry faculty for more than 40 years. Over the past four decades, Gladfelter has shown unending dedication in his service to the departmental community and to his research. In 1999, Gladfelter was appointed chair of the Department of Chemistry, a position he held for six years. Shortly after stepping down as department chair, Gladfelter served as the college’s associate dean of Academic Affairs. He has advised more than 50 doctorate students and, with them, has co-authored more than 250 papers. He is one of the college’s Distinguished Professors honored for his contributions to teaching and scholarly research, and commitment to the college.
