Society Committee on Education
What We Do
The Society Committee on Education (SOCED) ensures that the American Chemical Society's educational activities focus on the committee’s vision of advancing chemistry education for all and on ACS Goal 3 to Support Excellence in Education.
The committee fulfills its mission of developing and promoting policies, resources, and programs that advance chemistry education for all via three goals:
- Foster a culture of innovation and integrity in chemistry teaching, learning, assessment, and mentored research
- Advance inclusive excellence for all learners and educators
- Support and recognize chemistry educators and mentors
