Department of Chemistry & Physics

Located in the new, state-of-the-art Lindley Center for STEM Education, the chemistry and physics disciplines are combined into a cohesive department dedicated to supporting all students coming through our lab doors.  Whether you come to Lindley for a GE course or for a devoted dive into lab sciences, the department's mission is to foster all students’ scientific and technological literacy by delivering quality instruction, engaging lab experiences, and academic support opportunities.  Finally, we have active clubs for both chemistry and physics – providing an opportunity to enrich your college experience with like-minded students.

The Santa Rosa Junior College's commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion is applied daily in our labs and lecture halls. Diverse, inclusive teams are more likely to explore creative and innovative ideas, be better collaborators, and build communities where members feel involved and thus more committed to the team.  Diversity in STEM: What It Is and Why It Matters
