My chemistry Department (Salisbury University) does not presently have a
policy requiring pants to be worn in the undergraduate teaching labs.  I
know the ACS recommends undergraduates wearing them, but our faculty are
somewhat split on enforcing the wearing of pants, especially in the
general chemistry lab, wear a minimum of hazardous chemicals are used. 
I would appreciate any input on thoughts on a requirement for wearing
pants (not shorts, skits, etc.).

Thank you,
