Corrosion camp

Local middle school and high school teachers attended ASM Foundation's Materials Camp hosted at The University of Akron.

Outreach and Public Policy

Since the center serves as an interchange between academic research and development, its mission includes developing and disseminating corrosion-related information and materials to members of the government, industry, academic communities and the general public.

Such activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Hosting of conferences
  • Hosting technical conferences
  • Developing course materials

These activities are intended to promote a greater public understanding of the impact of corrosion and to stimulate interest in the field.

Furthermore, the center plays an important advocacy role by promoting the integration of corrosion prevention and control into public policy debates. Because of its leadership role in establishing a unique national program, and its vast network of public and private experts on this subject, UA is in a strong position to leverage its relationships to facilitate and shape a national dialogue on corrosion-related topics.
