Several faculty members are working with undergraduate students on research projects that are centered on green chemistry. The organic chemistry and bio-organic lab courses contain a number of experiments that highlight the principles of green chemistry, and more are being proposed. Green chemistry standards are also presented in the Environmental Studies major (including a course in Environmental Chemistry).
