The two-year college chemistry landscape is a rich and varied arena. Since 1970, ACS has provided guidelines to support excellence in two-year college programs. Last updated in 2009, the ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year Colleges has provided a highly flexible model that addresses the challenges faced in a wide variety of two-year chemistry transfer, technology, and support systems. Starting in 2014, the Guidelines will be revised to address emerging trends in the higher education landscape. This symposium will address the role of the Guidelines in two-year college chemistry education, changes in the landscape over the past five years, and the process for keeping the Guidelines current. Through presentations and discussions, participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on changes needed to keep the Guidelines current with the needs of the community.
