Since 2008, Chapman’s College of Science and Technology has undergone rapid growth in both undergraduate students and faculty.  The current science building housing lab sciences is far too small and old to accommodate rapid growth and support the new technologies common to undergraduate teaching labs.  Although all undergraduate programs have been affected by growth and aging infrastructure, chemistry and biochemistry have been particularly hard hit.  Space has constrained the number of instruments that are available for chemistry and biochemistry undergraduate teaching laboratories and for student research, while the infrastructure has limited the types of modern instruments the building can support.  To address these issues, Chapman University has committed to build a state-of-the-art 140,000 square foot science and technology center to open during the 2018-2019 academic year.  The current request will facilitate the purchase of chemistry and biochemistry instruments that will transform the quality of undergraduate teaching, learning, and research in the College.  The availability of new technology will activate revisions in course syllabi and learning outcomes to reflect the enhanced undergraduate learning and research labs.
