"I enjoyed my time training the next generation of scientists on how to write a paper, prepare insightful figures, and about research and publication ethics. The students asked excellent questions that I'm confident will also be helpful for their advisors. ACS on Campus provides a valuable service not simply as an outreach for ACS Publications but as a general framework for how to think about framing research problems."

- Prof. Teri Odom, Executive Editor, ACS Photonics

“ACS on Campus provides an excellent opportunity to interact with stalwarts in the field of chemistry. It is a great opportunity for young minds to orient their research careers and for the more seasoned minds to polish and update their ideas to adapt to the ever dynamic world of research.”

-IISc Bangalore, 2016

What is ACS on Campus?

ACS on Campus, the American Chemical Society’s flagship outreach program, began in 2010 with events at a handful of universities. Today, we have been to hundreds of institutions around the world and continue to grow globally. We bring the leaders in chemistry, publishing, science communication, and career development to your institution’s doorstep.

Collaborating with institutions around the world.

We partner with the host institution to design a program tailored to their research interests and professional development needs with no cost to the host. No ACS on Campus event is alike. Our programs range from two-hour sessions to full day events. We take into consideration the demographics and size of the audience and then identify the best ACS journal editors and local speakers to deliver programming exclusively tailored to your needs. Sessions are a mixture of lectures, panel discussions, demonstrations, and interactive sessions, and they are all guaranteed to be interactive with high engagement.

Who should attend?

ACS on Campus is appropriate for undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty members, non-faculty researchers, and ACS members studying the pure and applied sciences – not just chemistry!

Why should you attend?

ACS on Campus is all about YOU. After an event, you’ll leave feeling confident in your science and empowered to contribute to the larger chemical enterprise. Our sessions will introduce you to publishing and informatics processes, and contribute to your professional development. You’ll benefit from exposure to ACS editors and networking opportunities with local professionals and your peers. The opportunities and benefits from ACS on Campus are endless. Even better, the events are FREE for all attendees.
