Innovative science. Meaningful outreach. Modern pedagogy. Donuts on Fridays. One of these things is not like the others. All of them belong. At the Chemistry program of Emory University, we know that great research and teaching takes place in the context of an engaged community. Our weekly tradition of enjoying donuts in the chemistry stockroom is part of that commitment.
