Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Supporting and Engaging Two-Year College Programs: Exploring the ACS Role

Symposium Title: Supporting and Engaging Two-Year College Programs: Exploring the ACS Role
Descrption: How can ACS engage and support two-year college programs? Following the release of the "ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs," a task force was formed to answer this question. Discussions will focus on potential frameworks for ongoing evaluation and improvement, identification and communication of effective practices and critical issues, and recognition of high standards in two-year college programs. Input will also be requested on procedures to 1) Coordinate the preparation, review, dissemination, and updates of supplements for the ACS Guidelines for Chemistry in Two-Year College Programs; 2) Assess the use and impact of the Guidelines, review results, and share them with the community; and 3) Explore how the guidelines could be made more useful, collecting and disseminating examples of how they are used. Questions about the guidelines will also be addressed during this interactive session.
