$1.22M Gift Will Modernize Chemistry Labs at UNO

NEW ORLEANS — From the University of New Orleans:

A $1.22 million gift from an anonymous donor will modernize the UNO chemistry laboratories. This is the second such gift in the past five years.

In 2018, the same benefactor’s $1 million gift was used to upgrade a first round of chemistry labs and classrooms. The latest donation will be used to renovate an organic chemistry lab and a general chemistry lab in order to meet the 21st century learning needs of students.

“We are so appreciative of the ongoing generosity of our donor to provide cutting-edge laboratory experiences in our introductory and organic chemistry labs,” said Steve Johnson, dean of the College of Sciences. “Coupled with outstanding instruction by chemistry graduate students and staff, these students will be well-prepared for their future endeavors in the physical and life sciences.”    

The renovations and purchase of new equipment will be made with the goal of meeting the best practice standards recommended by the American Chemical Society. Improvements include ergonomically designed work areas as well as new lighting, washing stations and chemically resistant bench tops and flooring.
