Richard E. Beaupre Center for Chemical & Forensic Sciences

One of the newest buildings on the University’s Kingston Campus  is named in honor of 1962 URI alumnus and supporter Richard Beaupre, the founder and chief executive officer of Lincoln-based ChemArt. 

Funded in large part by a $61 million bond issue approved by Rhode Island voters in the 2010 election, the 135,000-square-foot center will serve more than 7,000 chemistry students. About 40 percent of all URI degree programs require at least one chemistry class.
