The faculty and students of the NSU Department of Chemistry are very active in community outreach efforts. Many students serve as science and math tutors for peers and local public school students. The Department, under the guidance of Dr. Black, administers the National Chemistry Olympiad program for the Hampton Roads Area.
Chemistry faculty actively participate in the IC Norcom High School Saturday Scientist Program. NSU Chemistry faculty make frequent visits to local elementary, middle, and high schools exciting and educating students about science. More than 30 presentations were made last year alone.
