About the ACS Club

The ACS Club at IUP, which was formed in the 1970s, is composed predominantly of students in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, and pre-professional majors. Members provide free chemistry tutoring four days a week during the semester, raise money via fund-raising activities that is donated to local school science programs ($1,000 each year), and hold or participate in community outreach activities such as National Chemistry Week in Pittsburgh, Mole Day, and local science festivals.

The club was recently given a Commendable Award by the National Office of the ACS for its achievements and activities during the 2009–2010 academic year. The club also received two Honorable Mention Awards for the 2008–2009 and 2006–2007 academic years.
