The proposal founding the Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering Committee was submitted to the NSF on July 14, 1969 and first official meeting of the CACHE organization was held on November 18, 1969 in Washington DC. From its inception, CACHE has promoted the development and distribution of technology-based materials and software in chemical engineering education through projects applying computational chemical engineering, sponsoring conferences, recognizing outstanding contributions, and providing leadership in chemical engineering education. The purpose of this presentation is to review the accomplishments of CACHE over this 50-year period in supporting educational and research innovations.
