About Us


ACS POLY/PMSE promotes the importance and understanding of polymers for applications around the world. This organization seeks to also promote interest in the University of Michigan academic programs, which engage in cutting edge polymer research, such as Macromolecular Science & Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, and Chemistry.

Interaction with scholars will be promoted through invited speakers. These targeted discussions between the scientific community and audiences of Michigan students and faculty will promote awareness and appreciation of important topics in the field. Youth outreach is another mission of this organization. Through scheduled school visits and demonstrations, ACS POLY endeavors to engage younger students in the discussion and pique their interest in polymers and science in general. We thank The Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop http://www.rackham.umich.edu/academics/interdisciplinary-workshops For its support of our activities.
