We provide them in our undergraduate chemistry/biochemistry labs, amid some gnashing of teeth over the cost! We do require students to purchase their own safety goggles. I don’t know what other undergraduate lab classes provide – biology, geology, etc.

As the staff of the Chemistry & Biochemistry Teaching Labs, we have been asked to propose ideas for saving money, as bud gets are only getting tighter over the next few years. One idea proposed is that we stop providing gloves ad lib. to students, but have them buy & bring th eir own. We currently supply either nitrile or PVC examination (thin, single-us e) gloves in our labs.
Do you provide/require gloves for student labs? span>
