Division of Chemical Education, Inc.

The Division of Chemical Education (DivCHED) is one of the 33 technical divisions within the American Chemical Society (ACS). Its members come from the entire educational spectrum (pre-secondary, secondary, two- and four-year colleges, universities, research institutions), and include those from industry who are concerned about the education and professional training of future chemists and other molecular scientists. DivCHED provides a common ground for teachers and students of chemistry to examine chemical education in its broadest sense through its committee and governance structure, website, Newsletter, programs at national and regional ACS meetings, the ACS Exams Institute, the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE), and the premier journal in its field, the Journal of Chemical Education.
