Dr. Chad E. Wallace
Dean, School of Science and Engineering; Professor of Chemistry
Dr. Wallace was an undergraduate student at Anderson University. He loved AU so much; he returned to join the faculty in the fall of 2000. Because of his background in organometallic chemistry, he teaches organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and several other advanced chemistry courses.
His research at Anderson University has been mostly in the area of chemical synthesis. He has investigated the synthesis and efficacy of chemotherapy drugs to fight lymphoma cancer cells. His most recent work involves the synthesis of 3D organometallic frameworks and pyrene-based fluorescent sensors.
In addition to his research and teaching, Dr. Wallace has spent the last several years developing a small organic chemistry textbook to simplify the sometimes difficult-to-understand concepts in that subject.
Dr. Wallace has a heart for the gospel. He invests well in the lives of his AU students. For example, he has taken several trips with AU students to rural Honduras to do medical missions. The worked with doctors (some who were AU alumni) to provide health care in remote mountain villages.
Dr. Wallace is married to his wonderful wife Amy, with whom he has three ridiculously cute children; a daughter, Ally, and two sons, Carson and Mason. He loves Jesus, his family, and his friends. He enjoys basketball, camping, and driving around the U.S. with his family over summer breaks.
Dr. Chad Wallace has served at Anderson University since 2000.
