To fulfill Auburn University’s mission as a Land-Grant Institution, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry aspires to be a respectful and inclusive community that upholds high standards in research, education, and outreach. We welcome truth-seekers of all backgrounds and strive to maintain a sense of community as we work together to dismantle the systemic barriers that stifle creativity and impede both personal and professional growth. Through our efforts, we envision the formation of productive and long-lasting connections not only within our department, but also within the global scientific community.
