The gathering of alumni profiles began in Fall 2015, by Professor Carol M. Taylor, then Department Chair. The initial goal of the project was to provide chemistry majors with some examples of career paths possible with a BS in Chemistry. In 2016, we began to also profile PhD graduates, and a few MS graduates came to our attention. We sought suggestions from all faculty and graduate students and, when alumni contacted us for assorted reasons, we asked if they’d be willing to participate in the project. Taylor acknowledges the assistance of Ashley Taylor, Abigael Theriot and Kim Mollere, who worked with alumni to draft some of the profiles. The project was supported, under the auspices of broader impacts, by Taylor’s NSF grant (CH146893) from 2015-19, during which time the first 50 profiles were created.
