Dr. Lawrence E. Posner, M.A. Economics ’05, and Dr. Amy E. Newburger endowed a fund to support the UConn Department of Chemistry in its teaching and research goals and to further faculty development. Few scholarly activities embody this mission as effectively as the free exchange of ideas and findings with the brightest minds in chemistry. The Posner–Newburger Distinguished Lectures give our faculty and students the opportunity to bring preeminent scholars to our department for a lecture and a day of interaction with our faculty and students.
