The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) recently announced a university tour program. The program is reportedly designed to showcase the industry to prospective employees at leading universities and colleges that have a focus on adhesives and sealants within their curriculum.

The ASC partnered with the Adhesion Society to present at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Johns Hopkins University, Lehigh University, University of Akron and Northwestern University. Dates and times have not been announced.

“ASC’s Long Range Plan calls for the council to facilitate knowledge sharing across the adhesive and sealant community, while developing key university relationships in order to pull expertise, insights and interest in adhesives,” said Matthew E. Croson, president. “The university tours will provide the opportunity for ASC to share the market size and scope, our innovation orientation and student career planning information with students who are interested in exploring our industry as a career path.”

Each tour will include a presentation, a question-and-answer session, and an informal networking opportunity. The schools will coordinate student participation, and the ASC will deliver the information and invite member companies to attend and participate.
