Department of Physical Sciences
The mission of the Department of Physical Sciences is congruent with the mission of the university. Derived from the liberal arts tradition, the study of physical sciences provides students with the opportunity to acquire knowledge in support of the intellectual life, through emphasis on life-long learning of chemistry and physics. Through the generous support of administrators, faculty, alumni and friends the Department of Physical Sciences has established two Scholarship funds to assist chemistry majors as follows:
In 2001, the Physical Sciences Honor Scholarship was established to recognize outstanding chemistry majors for performance and service to the community.
In 2007, the Chemistry and Physics Endowed Scholarship was established to assist undergraduate chemistry majors who demonstrate dedication to involvement in department activities.
