The chemistry labor program is essential to the education program in our department. We normally hire nine students on 10-12 hour and six students on 15 hour primary contracts and another five are hired for secondary 0-5 hour contracts. Each year we select one worker as our student manager who helps coordinate duties and generally organize the other workers. Required duties include doing chemical preparation for the various general, organic, and analytical laboratories. Grading homework, quizzes, and laboratory notebooks for these same classes. Our teaching assistants also are instrumental in our tutoring program that runs on Sunday afternoon from 4-6 and Tuesday-Thursday evenings from 7-9.
