Jennifer Schmidt-McCormack

Assistant Professor

Jennifer teaches general chemistry as well as upper-level courses in analytical chemistry using active-learning to help students develop both chemistry content knowledge and soft skills.

  • PhD, University of Iowa, Chemistry
  • BA, University of Minnesota-Morris, Chemistry

I try to cultivate a classroom environment that encourages students to develop their knowledge in chemistry and in soft skills, such as communication and problem solving. I use active learning, small group work, and interacting individually with my students to help them develop these skills. I strive for my students to learn how to successfully solve a wide array of problems and situations they might encounter, both inside and outside the chemistry classroom.
