The Department of Chemistry’s Board of Visitors (BOV) is a volunteer advisory body dedicated to helping the Department successfully fulfill its teaching, research and service missions and become one of the preeminent chemistry departments in the nation. The BOV has a vision of enriching the research and teaching endeavors and the intellectual capital of the Department.

The department recognizes and appreciates all of the support and interaction it receives from its engaged board.
