DivCHED International Activities Committee

Mission: As the International Activities Committee of the Division of Chemical Education, our aim is to engage and connect with other networks of chemistry educators with global interests. Through these networks, we will exchange ideas about chemistry education research and practices that promote equity and diversity in chemistry education.

To accomplish these goals, we will:

  • Host symposia and events both in and out of the United States, wherein the co-organizers will consist of one veteran DivCHED IAC member, one new DivCHED IAC member and one international ACS DivCHED member.
  • Disseminate information pertaining to international events through our DivCHED website and social media.
  • Support global research interests by offering a yearly travel award in the amount of $2000 to support an ACS DivCHED member to attend international meetings.
  • Promote and arrange collaborations.
International Guests - Promoting global collaborations is a prime interest of the DivCHED-IAC. If you share our interest and would like to connect with the ACS Chemical Education Community please complete this form.. The DivCHED-IAC will do its best to connect you with chemistry education researchers and/or practitioners based on common interests, expertise, availability and needs.
Meeting Schedules: 

National Meetings: Sunday from 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM (Open Meeting)
