Join the Chemistry Department as we both honor the memory of Randolph T. Major and kick-off the UConn Chemistry Building's 20th Anniversary Celebration!
Opening in 1999, the Chemistry Building was the first UConn building to be built as part of the 20-year UConn 2000 initiative. UConn 2000 was an unprecedented state-funded program that set aside $1 billion to upgrade a series of 85 capital projects across UConn's campuses. The Chemistry Building—still considered an iconic campus landmark to this day—marked the beginning of the amazing transformation on the Storrs campus. In these years, the Department has experienced tremendous growth thanks to the hard work, innovation, and success of all those that call the Chemistry Building “home.”

Over the course of two days, you will have the opportunity to participate in the:
  • Randolph T. Major Lecture Series
  • “Remembering Randolph T. Major” Reception and Dinner
  • 20th Anniversary Kick-off
