The University of Wisconsin-Parkside has a history of highly successful graduates in chemistry. To help continue that tradition, the UW Board of Regents recently approved a $1.2-million renovation of two chemistry labs that will be combined into one lab serving the needs of organic and inorganic chemistry students. The Regents included the lab renovation in its proposed UW System 2015-2017 capital planning budget, which now awaits legislative approval for inclusion in the 2015-2017 Wisconsin state budget. The current chemistry labs were built in the 1970s. The upgraded space, with modern conditions, better instrumentation, and sufficient storage room for the required laboratory equipment, will offer chemistry students of today and tomorrow a highly relevant educational experience.
