S12: Recognizing Excellence: Investigating a Recognition Program for Two-Year Colleges

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ACS is investigating ways to recognize excellence in chemistry and chemistry-based technology education in two-year college programs. Any such framework needs to address the diversity of programs, student bodies, locations, structures, and available resources that make up the two-year college chemistry landscape. In this symposium, presentations, panel discussions, group discussions, and breakout sessions will be used to collect community input on such questions as: 1) Can two-year college programs benefit from ACS recognition? 2) How is excellence demonstrated in different types of programs? 3) How can excellence be recognized when there is no dedicated chemistry program? 4) What does excellence look like? How is it defined? 5) What can faculty do to document excellent practices at their institutions? Join the ACS Two-Year College Advisory Board in developing a recognition process that will strengthen the two-year college chemistry community and all of higher education.
