"I found the symposium to be of tremendous value, especially from a research and potential talent perspective. I am hopeful to see this become a future, annual event." - Elaina Carpino, Owens Corning, 2012


"I really enjoyed the symposium for several reasons: 1) the itinerary was well-balanced on time and content, 2) as a process chemist, I enjoyed learning about the latest developments within your department, 3) the working lunch/poster session was a nice way to showcase results and interact with attendees. I left the event feeling you started a nice tradition." - Doug Bland, Dow Chemical Co., 2012
