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 ( and will be carried out in partnership with chemistry faculty that currently incorporate green chemistry in to their teaching, service and research.

Instructors include:
- John Warner, President and CTO, Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry
and co-author of Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice
- Mike Cann, Dept. of Chemistry, University of Scranton
- Amy Cannon, Executive Director, Beyond Benign
- Rich Gurney, Dept. of Chemistry and Physics, Simmons College
- Irv Levy, Dept. of Chemistry, Gordon College
- Michael O'Brien, Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Siena College

Applications are currently being accepted! Participants will be accepted on a space available basis. Teams of 2-3 faculty from each institution are encouraged to apply.
