Professor Howard D. Stidham, 92, passed away November 13, 2017. He was a valued member of the UMass Chemistry Department for 61 years, specializing in physical chemistry and Raman spectroscopy until his retirement this past August.

In a trip to Beijing in October 2017, Professor Vincent Rotello from the Department of Chemistry was appointed as a Guest Professor at the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He also gave an Institute-wide Molecular Sciences Forum presentation at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Both of these Centers are the top institution in their respective area in China, and are highly ranked internationally.

The new Design Building at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has been named the John W. Olver Design Building in honor of the retired congressman and former UMass Amherst chemistry professor.
