Green Chemistry Commitment
Our program has signed the "Green Chemistry Commitment" sponsored by Beyond Benign.
Green Chemistry is defined as “the design of chemical products and processes that reduce and/or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances”.
By signing, we pledge to implement the following green chemistry student learning objectives:
- Theory: Have a working knowledge of the Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry.
- Toxicology: Have an understanding of the principles of toxicology, the molecular mechanisms of how chemicals affect human health and the environment, and the resources to identify and assess molecular hazards.
- Laboratory Skills: Possess the ability to assess chemical products and processes and design greener alternatives when appropriate.
- Application: Be prepared to serve society in their professional capacity as scientists and professionals through the articulation, evaluation and employment of methods and chemicals that are benign for human health and the environment.
We do this as stewards of the earth, for, “The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1).
