New Chemistry Chair Appointed

June 22, 2007 - Campus Bulletin

Prof. Adrian Schwan has been appointed chair of the Department of Chemistry. His five-year term begins July 1, 2007.

Schwan joined the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in 1989. He served as director, and is still an active member, of the Guelph-Waterloo Centre for Graduate Work in Chemistry and Biochemistry.

“Adrian's experience gained from many and varied activities in the department as well as his time spent as director of the Guelph-Waterloo Centre has prepared him well to become the chair of the department,” said Anthony Vannelli, dean of the College of Physical and Engineering Science. “I especially appreciate hearing that many faculty members have already extended their help to Adrian.”

Vannelli said he extends special thanks to Prof. John Goddard, who stepped in as acting chair over the last year.
