Outstanding Chapter Award Received 

UNI's ACS Student Affiliate Chapter has received an Outstanding Chapter Award for 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2018-2019, 2019-2020.

Each year's report was reviewed by three faculty advisors, who provided feedback to consider when planning future activities.

Comments from the faculty advisors are summarized as follows:

"This chapter was extremely successful at promoting chemistry in their school and sharing their love of chemistry with the local community.  This concern is evident by the number of Chapter meetings they scheduled to appropriately advance their activities. This will go a long way in encouraging young people in northern Iowa to consider chemistry as a career. Furthermore, the Chapter is well funded due to University support of student travel to meetings and a couple of smaller grants.  It appears to me that if your chapter wants to do something, you find the resources and get it done. Excellent job!"

The award winning chapters are recognized in the November/December issue of "inChemistry" magazine and at the ACS Student Chapter Award Ceremony at the ACS National Meeting.
