Green Chemistry in Higher Education: A Region 2 Faculty Workshop
Location: Siena College, Loudonville, NY
Date: July 18 - 21, 2013
The Green Chemistry in Higher Education workshop is a three-day hands-on workshop for EPA Region 2* colleges and universities. Funded through an EPA Region 2 Source Reduction grant, the goal of the workshop is to catalyze the adoption of green chemistry within chemistry programs at Region 2* higher education institutions. The workshop will feature sessions on different methodologies for infusing green chemistry in to chemistry courses, including: implementing industrial case studies in higher education, adopting greener laboratory exercises, green chemistry and toxicology in lecture courses and working sessions on re-designing curricular materials.
The workshop is open to all Region 2 faculty members from higher education institutions. All food and lodging expenses will be paid for participating faculty.
The workshop is coordinated through Beyond Benign, a non-profit dedicated to green chemistry education (www.beyondbenign.org) and will be carried out in partnership with chemistry faculty that currently incorporate green chemistry in to their teaching, service and research.
