About the Division

The Division of Chemical Education (DivCHED) is one of the 32 technical divisions within the American Chemical Society (ACS). Its members come from the entire educational spectrum (pre-secondary, secondary, two- and four-year colleges, universities, research institutions), and include those from industry who are concerned about the education and professional training of future chemists and other molecular scientists. DivCHED provides a common ground for teachers and students of chemistry to examine chemical education in its broadest sense through its committee and governance structure, website, Newsletter, programs at national and regional ACS meetings, the ACS Exams Institute, the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE), and the premier journal in its field, the Journal of Chemical Education.


  • To be recognized as the global leader in investigating and promoting issues related to the teaching and learning of chemistry
  • To promote the scholarly exchange of information about the processes by which original knowledge and investigations are made understandable and usable to others
  • To afford a meeting ground for teachers and students of chemistry as well as others who are interested in the larger aspects of chemical education
