MACTLAC brings together teachers of chemistry in the liberal arts colleges of the North Central region of the United States (Midwest) for exchange of ideas and for general mutual helpfulness in their profession. This region is defined as including the states of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri, together with areas reasonably adjacent to the borders of the above seven states, not otherwise served by a similar association or agency. The group also welcomes those who are interested in teaching chemistry at a liberal arts institution.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the MACTLAC Executive Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2021 annual meeting.
The 2019 Annual meeting was held on October 11th and 12th at St. Catherine University (St. Paul, MN) with the theme “The Chemistry of Art and Artifact Restoration”.
