- Our Organization
The University of the Philippines Association of Chemistry Majors and Enthusiasts (UP ACME) is a non-political, non-profit, student-oriented, academic organization based in the Institute of Chemistry, UP Diliman. Approaching two decades, UP ACME has been dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of chemistry, and has been serving chemistry students and developing well-rounded leaders with high sense of responsibility.
Since its establishment in 1997, the organization has consistently produced board exam topnotchers, Baldomero Olivera and Lourdes Cruz awardees, students prestigiously recognized for their academic excellence, proactive leaders, postdoctorates, and hundreds of chemists leading in their own fields. With a strong member base of presently more than sixty Chemistry majors and enthusiasts, UP ACME takes a quantum leap higher in uplifting Chemistry in the Philippine setting through countless events like seminars, symposia, review series, competitions, projects, and campaigns all throughout the academic year.
UP ACME fulfills a legacy of excellence with Dr. Hiyas A. Junio as Senior Faculty Adviser, and Sir Efreihm Jovi T. De Guzman as Junior Faculty Adviser.
