Facilities and Research


CC&PS is housed on all three floors of the Science Buildin and the General Classroom Building.

The Science Building includes faculty offices, six classrooms, a library, a classroom/computer laboratory with twenty-four workstations, two general chemistry laboratories, a biochemistry laboratory, an organic laboratory, an analytical chemistry laboratory, a core instrument laboratory, an inorganic/physical chemistry laboratory, a physics laboratory, an electronics laboratory, and a twelve station computer laboratory with Vernier LoggerPro interfaces for real-time data collection of student experimental data.

The General Classroom Building includes faculty offices and three classrooms, and three computer labs/classrooms with thirty-two students workstations in each computer lab.

In addition, the Department of CC&PS also owns a variety of common equipment found in teaching laboratories including refrigerators, balances (toploading and analytical), pH meters, water baths, orbital shakers, and most common glassware that is available for research activities.


CC&PS has been very active and successful in pursuing external funding, obtaining over two million dollars in recent years in funding through the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, Oklahoma NIH-EPSCOR INBRE Program, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Zinpro Corporation, and other private research sponsors.
