Student Hosted Colloquia

The Student Hosted Colloquia (SHC) are seminars that appeal to a broad scientific audience. This series, entirely run by graduate students in the Department of Chemistry, aims to select speakers who are engaging, enthusiastic and interested in sharing their scientific knowledge and research with our students. The success of this program is dependent upon sponsorship by our industry partners. Seminars in the SHC series are free and open to the public.
