Communities Beyond the ACS National Meeting
ACS wants to provide programs and resources that target
your needs as graduate students. Because making connections and creating community have been indicators of
success, ACS is exploring the prospect of introducing ACS
Graduate Student Organizations (GSOs). We are incredibly
excited to discover how we can help to create community
through ACS GSOs, and we look forward to finding out the
ways in which ACS can support you through these structures.
If you already have a GSO on your campus, or if the
idea of starting one sounds like the perfect way to create a
supportive and like-minded group of chemistry individuals ,
ACS would like to hear from you to find out the best way for
us to begin offering you additional relevant programs and
resources through these communities. These structures and
resources should represent you and your needs as graduate
students, so for ACS to curate the best programs possible,
your feedback is paramount.
Whether or not you are attending the ACS National
Meeting in Boston, ACS has programs and resources that
are advantageous to you as you navigate your way through
graduate school, your postdoc, and through to your career.
We want to create the things that will be most useful to you
as you progress through your graduate program and beyond,
so please use the resources that are available to you, and reach
out if there is something else we can be doing that may be
beneficial to you and your future career in chemistry. n
