Overview
Dr. Schetema Nealy is a chemist, educator, and researcher. She has recently been honored as an outstanding graduate, and proudly recognized for being the first African-American woman to graduate with a PhD in chemistry at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Her doctoral studies were focused in chemistry education and resulted in a dissertation titled “Science Identity and Underrepresented Minority STEM Organizations.” In addition to her PhD, she holds a master of science degree in chemistry from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), a second master of science degree in analytical chemistry from the California State University at Los Angeles (CSULA), a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), and an associate of science degree in chemistry from San Bernardino Valley College. She currently holds the positions of Assistant Professor and Research Coordinator at the Charles R. Drew University of Science and Medicine (CDU). She is also responsible for designing, developing, and implementing a mentorship program for the participants of the Health Careers Opportunity Program (HCOP) at CDU.
