Each year as part of the UNK Homecoming activities, the Chemistry
Department invites a distinguished Kearney State College/UNK chemistry
alumnus to present the Don Fox Lecture in honor of Dr. Donald Fox. Fox was
a former UNK chemistry faculty member, department chair and Dean of Natural and Social Sciences. Schulte will present a lecture entitled “Actinide
Separations Chemistry for the 21st Century.”

Schulte received a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from UNK and a
Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He is
a specialist in the area of actinide separations and is the LANL
representative to the governing board of the Actinide Separations
Conference. Schulte has developed solutions for a wide range of problems
with large-scale separations of plutonium and americium.
