ACS Senior Chemists

Share your experiences, inspire a student, advocate for chemistry!

The Senior Chemists Committee (SCC) encourages engagement and collaboration across the Society with ACS groups and within the community. SCC’s objectives are to improve communication among senior chemists, increase the number of senior chemists’ groups and the level of their engagement within local sections, and encourage the involvement of senior chemists in programs focused on K-12 education, undergraduate networking, and mentoring. The committee established a new strategic plan in August 2018. If you have questions, or would like to get involved with the committee’s activities, please send an email to seniorchemists@acs.org.

SCC Vision
