Most chemistry students at a community college are aiming to transfer to a four-year college and complete a baccalaureate degree, apply to a professional health science program, or enter the workforce. All of these pathways require soft skills and thinking skills that are not part of the traditional chemistry curriculum but are essential for success. This symposium will discuss the skills students need to be taught to succeed and effective practices in instilling them.
