The American Chemical Society selected the ACS student chapter at Slippery Rock University with a Commendable award for the chapter's activities conducted during the 2017-18 academic year.

The chapter was evaluated by the ACS's Committee of Education among more than 400 chapter activity reports submitted, and the chapter at SRU was among 161 chapters either receiving Outstanding or Commendable awards. The committee measured chapter activity based on chapter development, professional development and community service.

ACS student chapters are organizations for undergraduate students with an interest in the chemical sciences. Members participate in a wide range of programs and activities that enhance their college experience and prepare them for successful careers. The faculty adviser of the ACS student chapter at SRU is Thaddeus Boron, associate professor of chemistry.
