Many of the research projects that our faculty and students are involved in focus on the principles of green chemistry. In collaboration with our Biology and Physics Departments, we have offered a concentration in environmental science-chemistry for over 20 years, and we offer elective courses for the University’s Sustainability minor. Having been inspired by Dr. Warner during his lecture at Bradley, we plan to further integrate the principles of green chemistry into our curriculum and to adapt or develop laboratory experiments that reinforce these concepts.

The Bradley University Chemistry Club is our ACS student affiliate. This organization meets regularly during the academic year and hosts several events, including a holiday party and a departmental picnic. They also interact with other nearby ACS student affiliate chapters in the annual “Battle of the Chem Clubs.” The Demo Crew is an offshoot of our Chem Club whose members educate and entertain audiences using chemical experiments and demonstrations. Since its creation in 2007, the Demo Crew has held over 350 events in Central Illinois with over 34,000 participants.
- Introduce the principles of green chemistry in introductory courses
