Support CCE

The following are among the funds established with generous contributions from alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Gifts to these funds help ensure that CCE has the resources to attract exceptional faculty, researchers, and students from around the globe, and to equip them to lead innovative research efforts that will transform our society and our world.

The John D. and Edith M. Roberts Memorial Fund

The Jack D. and Edith M. Roberts Memorial Fund will support the Jack D. and Edith M. Roberts Chemistry Center. The Roberts Chemistry Center will provide undergraduate and graduate students facilities to advance their research using NMR spectroscopy.

The Harden M. McConnell Endowed Lectureship Fund

The Harden M. McConnell Endowed Lectureship Fund would provide support to bring an outstanding scientist to present a biennial lecture on physical chemistry to students, staff, faculty and in the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (CCE) as well as the broader Caltech community.
