Subject: Symposium on "Teaching Safety in Undergraduate Classrooms" at the
ACS San Francisco meeting, March 2010

Please note that a recently-added symposium on “Safety in the Undergraduate Classroom” has been added to the national American Chemical Society meeting in San Francisco in March 2010.   This email solicits papers for that symposium.  The symposium description is:

“In 2008 the ACS Committee on Professional Training published the revised Guidelines for Bachelor’s Degree Programs which affirm that undergraduate chemistry programs must include safety education “as an integral part of the chemistry curriculum” and that “throughout their studies students must experience safety procedures and processes.”  This symposium will include presentations of how different colleges and universities design and implement safety instruction in chemistry courses, both in individual courses and in curriculum-wide programs.  By sharing successful programs, we can all improve what we do on our home campuses and better educate our students for their future careers as safe scientists.”

Abstracts, due on October 19, may be submitted at:

Interim queries may be directed to me.
