Congratulations to Dr. Ralph House, Associate Chair for Research in the Department of Chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences, on receiving the 2023 Governor’s Award for Excellence for his work with Chemists Without Borders!

“House received the Human Relations award for his numerous global contributions through his voluntary role as vice president for research and development at Chemists Without Borders, a public benefit, international humanitarian organization. His contributions include creating a partnership with Human Rights and Science based in Stockholm, Sweden, to develop a core laboratory at the Chinhoyi University of Technology in Zimbabwe whose closest analytical facilities were previously two hours away, hampering the students training experience.”


At home, Dr. House champions the success and utilization of the core facilities in the Department of Chemistry and serves on the Core Facilities Staff Recognition Program Award Committee.
