B. University System Service



 

As a department chairman, ex officio member since 1982 of the University System of Georgia Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) on Chemistry.

Chair of the Subcommittee on Laboratory Safety and Chemical Waste Disposal, 1984 - 1994. Worked with the administration of the University System and of the Hazardous Materials Treatment Center at the University of Georgia to implement a centralized waste disposal system. During tenure as chair of this subcommittee, the system expanded to include training, annual pickup, and disposal of properly packed hazardous materials from all publicly-supported senior and junior colleges in the state.

Chair-elect of Chemistry AAC, 1994 - 1995

Chair, 1995 - 1996

While no longer an official member of the chemistry AAC during 1996 - 1997, as immediate past chair I was ex officio involved with its Executive Committee. When the 1996-97 chair, Ron DeLorenzo, had to excuse himself from attending the meeting in 1997, I took over the task of setting up arrangements for the meeting, which will take place at West Georgia just prior to the Georgia Academy meeting. These arrangements included coordinating a joint meeting with the AAC's on biology, geology, physics, and computer science as well as chemistry.



 

The Executive Committee of the AAC on Chemistry was asked to evaluate new Quality Core Curriculum guidelines developed for middle and high schools in Georgia. I served as convener of a cross-disciplinary team of University System science representatives to review and report on Quality Core Curriculum proposed by the State Department of Education, 1997
