FACETS (Facilitating Advances in Chemistry for Equity and Transparency for Scholars) strives to promote diversity, representation and inclusion in the Chemistry Department by encouraging dialogue and awareness within the community, empowering students to get involved, gain new perspectives, and creating a welcoming environment for current and prospective members of the department.

What are some things that FACETS does?

  • Provide tailored information about graduate school from historically excluded groups (HEGs).
  • Create spaces for dialogue, education, and awareness.
  • Connect students from HEGs with resources of interest.

"ReEnvision the culture of Chemistry"
