The primary goal of this aspect of the ACS Science Reform Program is to promote mentoring of natural science junior faculty at the post-mid-tenure review stage and to foster collaboration and discussion among all faculty teaching introductory science courses both within and among ACS member institutions. To promote mentoring activities on our member campuses, there is limited funding for mini-grants of up to $500 per grant year for each ACS institution to sponsor faculty mentoring activities as a means of fostering the reform of non-majors science education. These mini-grants are made possible by a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation of Los Angeles.
Examples of mentoring include but are not limited to:
Questions about the mini-grants may be directed to Linda McNally, Biology Department at Davidson College.
