WSSU's American Chemical Society (ACS) student chapter promotes chemistry and science to the campus and local communities. Members have opportunities for professional growth, networking, & research, including participation in science fairs, science night activities, and after-school programs for local K-12 students. Through a variety of annual projects, including canned good collections for a local food bank and donating resources to benefit needy families, members serve the local community.

Student Research

The faculty of the Department of Chemistry believes strongly that research is a critical component of an undergraduate chemistry degree. We encourage our undergraduate students to begin research as early as the freshman year.
