We are excited to bring to you the Fall 2018 edition of ChemConnections! Earlier this semester, Dr. John Lechleiter, former CEO of Eli Lilly, visited our department and gave a seminar. He was very impressed with our students, and we are proud of them. Last year our undergraduate enrollment increased more than 6 percent and this year our enrollment saw a slight increase. This means IUPUI is a preferred choice for more and more students. This year we hosted a departmental recruiting event: Chemistry Day. We have created a video for this event highlighting the department, and we will post this video online soon (please visit the departmental site periodically).
