The Biennial Conference on Chemistry Education (BCCE) will be held at Penn State this summer from July 29- August 2.  Please locally announce in your departments this call for papers related to undergraduate safety programs:


Best Practices in Undergraduate Safety Instruction


More national attention is being drawn to the topic of safety instruction at the undergraduate level in preparation for graduate studies and employment in the chemical industry. Undergraduate programs in chemistry are called upon to upgrade their safety instruction as a result. This symposium invites papers that will describe best practices and effective strategies that seek to educate, through various means, chemistry students about safe laboratory practices and inculcate in students a safety mindset that can persist throughout their career as chemists and scientists. "One size does not fit all", and institutions of different size and character will inevitably use different methods of instruction.


To submit an abstract:


David C. Finster
Professor of Chemistry
University Chemical Hygiene Officer
Department of Chemistry
Wittenberg University
