Advancing Graduate Education in the Chemical Sciences

The American Chemical Society has released the report Advancing Graduate Education in the Chemical Sciences, the outcome of the ACS Presidential Commission appointed early in 2012 by ACS President Bassam Z. Shakhashiri.

This report is the 21st century’s first major analysis of the education of chemical scientists in the USA, whose work impacts medicine, drug discovery, energy, materials science, and virtually every other field of science. The report’s recommendations, if implemented, will serve to ensure that technological leaders have the skills necessary to ensure future innovation, job creation, and competitiveness.

“No one organization or government agency can, by itself, implement the thoughtful commission recommendations,” concluded Bassam Z. Shakhashiri. “Success will require that government, the academic community, private sector and scientific societies work collaboratively in a coordinated fashion.”

Copies of the 60-page full report and the 20-page summary are available at www.acs.org/gradcommission.
