Resources for Excellence Workshops

While numerous resources exist for supporting excellence in two-year college chemistry education, finding the right resources and strategies to address your particular needs can be challenging. The Resources for Excellence workshops are designed to help faculty meet this challenge.  

Developed by the Society Committee on Education and the ACS Two-Year College Chemistry Consortium (2YC3), Resources for Excellence is a series of interactive workshops that help two-year college chemistry educators find the solutions that work for them.

Participants in Resources for Excellence workshops

  • Develop customized strategies and action plans to address specific challenges at individual two-year colleges
  • Create a network of supportive two-year college colleagues
  • Identify and implement resources to foster excellence in two-year college chemistry education

The Resources for Excellence workshops are facilitated by specially trained two-year college chemistry faculty and are held at conferences across the country. They cost nothing but the registration fee for the meeting.
