The Green Chemistry Commitment (GCC) was launched in June of 2013. The GCC is a consortium program aimed at bringing higher education institutions together around common goals and objectives to advance green chemistry education. The GCC is a voluntary, flexible program where chemistry departments commit to integrating green chemistry student learning objectives within their departments through different means and timelines. This presentation will reflect upon the first year of the program and discuss highlights and lessons learned. The presentation will also discuss current and future programs and goals for the Green Chemistry Commitment program.
