********************
The Chemistry Department, in conjunction with the annual "Partners in Giving" campaign, will be holding a silent auction on Friday, November 12th.  The event will be held in the Harrison Parlor of Lathrop Hall on the UW campus.  Prior to the actual auction, donations will be collected from faculty, staff, and students within the Chemistry Department.  These items (or gift certificates) will be available for viewing at a to-be-determined location in the Chemistry building . . . probably the display case outside the mail room.  The items will also be listed on the department website at: http://partnersingiving.chem.wisc.edu.

In addition to donations from department members, silent auction committee members will also be soliciting donations of food or gift certificates from local vendors.  It is hoped that with wholehearted participation from both the department and the Madison business community, the campaign will be significantly higher than in past years.

Overall, last year’s campaign raised approximately $2.9 million. Of this amount, state-agency and university employees each pledged totals of more than $1.3 million while UW Hospital & Clinics employees pledged more than $235,000. More than 8,800 state-agency, university, and UWHC employees contributed.  Since its inception in 1973 as the State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC), Partners in Giving has raised more than $56.3 million in Dane County for hundreds of charities.

If you have questions or would like to make a donation, please contact committee members as listed below.  Thank you for your anticipated participation!

Graduate study in Chemistry at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. We would be more than happy to arrange for our faculty to visit your institution in order to provide a more in depth overview of our graduate program. The Chemistry graduate program at the University of Michigan is highly interdisciplinary and covers traditional areas of Chemistry and Biochemistry as well as areas at the interface with Applied Physics, Materials Science, Medicine, Engineering and Science Education. Students in the U-M Chemistry graduate program come from a wide range of backgrounds. Our graduate curriculum combines courses that provide a solid foundation in the core areas of Chemistry as well as advanced courses tailored to specialized interests. Our graduate students participate in a research rotation system, providing the opportunity to try out different areas of Chemistry before choosing a research mentor. Following the choice of a research group, our students work as part of interdisciplinary teams that often include students and researchers from a broad range of other programs. Our graduate program provides support (including family health and dental insurance) through a combination of sources to students during their first year. During subsequent years, graduate students in good standing generally receive financial support, including summer salary and family health and dental insurance, through their mentors' grants. There are also opportunities to participate in a number of different training grants and teaching opportunities. You will find detailed information on our web site, which we invite you to explore at: http://www.umich.edu/~michchem. For additional information, please contact: Eitan Geva, Chair, Recruiting Committee Associate Professor of Chemistry, Phone: 734-764-7278, Fax: 734-647-4865, e-mail: ChemAdmissions@umich.edu.
