American Chemical Society, Washington, DC.
Designed for use in institutional self-studies and program reviews, these guidelines provide a comprehensive model for chemistry and chemical technology programs in two-year, associate-degree-granting colleges. The eight sections of the guide suggest 90 standards in the areas of: (1) chemistry program mission and periodic program review; (2) organizational structures supporting chemistry programs; (3) financial support and budgetary allocations; (4) the curriculum, covering program development, course scheduling, course prerequisites, the spectrum of introductory chemistry courses, general chemistry for science and engineering majors, preparatory chemistry courses, chemistry transfer programs, chemical technology programs, and chemistry courses for nonscience, allied health, engineering, and other programs and groups; (5) qualifications and working conditions of faculty and supporting staff; (6) academic advising and counseling; (7) articulation with secondary schools, transfer institutions, and industry; and (8) facilities, including lecture rooms, office space, student instructional laboratories, instructional support facilities, and the library.
