The students and faculty of the department are proud of our successful work together. Each year we send 10-15 students to present their research at the spring American Chemical Society meeting. Our students applying to medical school have been extraordinarily successful. We are also pleased to have internship opportunities with industrial partners in the region and around the country. Feel free to contact us with question or to arrange a visit to campus.


Halloween House

UNI Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS), in collaboration with students from the Departments of Biology, Physics and Earth Science, will be hosting a "Halloween House" Friday, October 28, 4:30 - 7:30 PM on the second floor of McCollum Science Hall.  

The event is free and invites children of all ages.  UNI students in costume will help children with hands-on chemistry activities, such as making liquid-nitrogen ice cream.
