Conrad L. Stanitski is Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at the University of Central Arkansas and is currently Visiting Professor at Franklin and Marshall College. He received his B.S. in Science Education from Bloomsburg State College, M.A. in Chemical Education from the University of Northern Iowa, and Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Connecticut. He has co-authored chemistry textbooks for science majors, allied health science students, nonscience majors, and high school chemistry students. Dr. Stanitski has won many teaching awards, including the CMA CATALYST National Award for Excellence in Chemistry Teaching; the Gustav Ohaus-National Science Teachers Association Award for Creative Innovations in College Science Teaching; the Thomas R. Branch Award for Teaching Excellence and the Samuel Nelson Gray Distinguished Professor Award from Randolph-Macon College; and the 2002 Western Connecticut ACS Section Visiting Scientist Award. He was Chair of the American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Education during 2001 and has been an elected Councilor for that division. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). An instrumental and vocal performer, he also enjoys jogging, tennis, rowing, and reading.

Peter C. Jurs is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Jurs earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Stanford University and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Washington. He then joined the faculty of Pennsylvania State University, where he has been Professor of Chemistry since 1978. Dr. Jurs's research interests have focused on the application of computational methods to chemical and biological problems, including the development of models linking molecular structure to chemical or biological properties (drug design). For this work he was awarded the A.C.S. Award for Computers in Chemistry in 1990. Dr. Jurs has been Assistant Head for Undergraduate Education at Penn State, and he works with the Chemical Education Interest Group to enhance and improve the undergraduate program. In 1995, he was awarded the C. I. Noll Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching. Dr. Jurs serves as an elected Councilor for the American Chemical Society Computer Division and he was recently selected as a Fellow of the American Cancer Society.
