PUIs increasingly offer opportunities of large schools in a smaller setting

ACS Chemistry and Engineering News
has an interesting article this week about science at predominantly undergraduate institutions at .

"According to Samet, liberal arts colleges that value research are moving to a slightly lighter teaching load, giving professors more time in the lab.

"Teaching is still a clear first priority," she says, "but research is a very close second." Samet says cutting-edge research is now happening at some PUIs. "We're doing top-notch research, just not cranking it out as fast" as chemists at bigger universities do, she says.
