This webinar will provide an overview of a new program titled the Green Chemistry Commitment (www.greenchemistrycommitment.org). The program is a departmental commitment designed for higher educational institutions as a voluntary, flexible framework for chemistry departments to adopt green chemistry theory and practice. The Commitment is centered on student learning objectives that take into account topics such as green chemistry and toxicology, which have traditionally been absent from chemistry programs. College and university chemistry departments sign on to the Commitment, indicating that they value the student learning objectives and committing to working towards implementing the student learning objectives within their own departments. This presentation will feature an overview of the program, along with a perspective from Dr. Ed Brush, a GCC faculty advisory board member and professor of chemistry at Bridgewater State University, one of the first signers of the Commitment.
