The Chemistry Department’s goal is to provide high quality educational programs for all students who study chemistry at KCKCC.  Faculty strive to teach chemistry in ways that help students to become life-long learners, develop effective written and oral communicators, and explore the relationship of chemistry to other fields. The department endeavors to integrate education and research by incorporating recent discoveries, modern techniques, and research-grade instrumentation into the curriculum.  As mentors for collaborative student-faculty research and creative projects, faculty works with students to expand fundamental knowledge in chemistry and develop students’ abilities for independent scholarship.  The department strives to prepare chemistry majors for direct employment in chemistry, entry into four-year colleges and universities or professional programs.
