Congratulations to Indiana University Student Chapter for being named ECS’s Outstanding Student Chapter for 2015.
The ECS Outstanding Student Chapter Award was established in 2012 to recognize distinguished student chapters that demonstrate active participation in The Electrochemical Society’s technical activities, establish community and outreach activities in the areas of electrochemical and solid state science and engineering education, and create and maintain a robust membership base.
With a competitive applicant pool this year, the student chapter at Indiana University truly demonstrated how they live out the mission of ECS within their community. As highlighted in their application, “Indiana University’s ECS Student Chapter is dedicated to the promotion of electrochemical and solid state science among three demographics: the general community, the general undergraduate and graduate student body at Indiana University, and the student ECS members.”
The criteria for this award focuses on continued involvement with ECS. One area that stood out to the selection committee is the commitment by Indiana University’s chapter members to publish in ECS journals along with consistent abstract submission and acceptance to present papers/posters at ECS meetings.
Indiana University Student Chapter will be presented with a recognition plaque at the upcoming 228th ECS Meeting in Phoenix, AZ.
Additionally, congratulations to the following student chapters for being named Chapters of Excellence for 2015.
- University of Virginia Student Chapter
- University of Maryland Student Chapter
