Celebrating the official kickoff of the Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory Building project

MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (09/29/2023) – Earlier this week, members of the department joined state officials and UMN dignitaries for an official kickoff celebration for the renovation project that will bring state-of-the-art chemistry teaching laboratories to campus in Fall 2025. Renovating and modernizing our teaching spaces will transform undergraduate chemistry education for more than 5,000 students each semester. We are thankful for our partners at the college, University, and State of Minnesota for their support of this critical project. As we look forward to the next chapter of teaching in this new space, we are excited to champion the next generation of discovery.
