    Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UW-La Crosse

    Dedicated to excellence in undergraduate education!

    Our faculty represent all of the major sub-fields of chemistry and have a diverse range of research interests - and generously give their time to assist students with coursework, and college and career advising. We are committed to providing a broad-based education that seeks to develop problem-solving skills through challenging coursework and hands-on laboratory experiences with modern equipment, instrumentation, and computation. Overall, we believe UWL provides one of the best undergraduate educational experiences in science available.



    Ms. Stefanie Sippl , of Wausau, WI, is this year's Murphy Award winner, which goes to the top graduating senior from the entire UWL campus.   Mr. Anthony Brandt , of Baraboo, WI, will receive the Strzelczyk Award, which goes to the top graduating senior from the College of Science and Health. Both intend to attend medical school.

    Aaron Monte, Department Chair, says, "These are two extraordinary students who have impressed virtually every professor who has had the pleasure of teaching them in classes and laboratories over the past several years.  They are perfect examples of the talented and hardworking students we attract to UWL and then send out into the world as very well trained young scientists who we expect to make the world a better place.  And for them to win these top awards amongst what I believe to be our strongest class of graduating chemistry and biochemistry majors ever is particularly remarkable."

    Exciting opportunities await chemistry and biochemistry majors in today's modern, technological world!

    If you have questions or concerns, please email Aaron Monte, Ph.D., Department Chair, or phone 608.785.8260.
