A program on the scale of the Institute for Chemistry Literacy Through Computational Science is only successful with the active support of a number of significant partners. The partners listed contribute to the structure, content and implementation of the ICLCS program:

The A-C Central Community Unit School District #262 is a small-rural unit district in West Central Illinois located approximately 18 miles west of Springfield. With a total enrollment of just under 500 students, A-C Central CUSD #262 was selected to represent the “typical” small-rural school facing the daunting task of providing the best possible education for students enrolled in Chemistry while at the same time balancing extremely limited resources and rapidly evolving technology. The district curriculum, while strongly defined and implemented as it currently exists, is a traditional mix of textbook, lecture and hands on labs.

Rural School DistrictsWith the dedication and support of 119 rural school districts, the program has impacted more than 8,000 high school chemistry students.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a world leader in research, teaching and public engagement, and is distinguished by the breadth of its programs, broad academic excellence and internationally renowned faculty.  The University of Illinois serves the state, the nation, and the world by creating knowledge, preparing students for lives of impact, and addressing critical societal needs through the transfer and application of knowledge.

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) located on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a leader in defining the future's high-performance cyberinfrastructure for scientists, engineers, and society. The Cybereducation group at NCSA develops and conducts a wide variety of activities and programs for educators and other learners. These activities disseminate advanced technologies to new and established communities to encourage audiences to adopt new computational technologies as learning tools in K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and the workplace.

Since its establishment in 1971, the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has become a center for medical education and bioscience excellence. By delivering a premier scientific education, cutting-edge research opportunities, and the highest quality clinical training, its traditional and dual degree Medical Scholars programs have earned outstanding reputations for preparing physician-scientist leaders for the 21st century.

The Department of Chemistry has been part of the University of Illinois since the University's beginning in 1868. By 1893, a four-year B.S. degree program in Chemistry had been established, and the first PhD in Chemistry was awarded in 1903. By the 1920s, the department was one of the largest in the United States in terms of facilities, faculty, and degrees granted. By the end of the twentieth century, more than 3,400 doctoral degrees had been awarded, making the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois the premier PhD-producing chemistry program in the United States.
