The Chemistry department has generously offered to cover the cost of round trip tickets on the R5 for any Villanova Undergraduate or Graduate students who wish to attend the Friday session of this event. To take advantage of this wonderful perk, students will need to RSVP to Peggy Kivitz no later than noon on Wednesday, June 26 (Registration for the event itself is separate, and a link to do so may be found below).
ACS on Campus is an outreach program dedicated to helping students, post-docs, and faculty advance their careers. The program brings leaders in chemistry, publishing, research, science communication, and career development to university campuses to present seminars and workshops. University of Pennsylvania will host ACS on Campus on Thursday, June 26 for a networking Science Café, featuring a special presentation on science and policy. The event continues on Friday, June 27 for a full day of sessions at the Carolyn Hoff Lynch Lecture Hall (Dept. of Chemistry). Students and faculty are invited to learn about the basics and ethics of scholarly publishing, writing a superior meeting abstract, and finding your career pathway. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided for all registered attendees each day. This event is not just for chemists. Sessions are appropriate for researchers in all fields of science. Register now for the event on the ACS on Campus website.
