APS develops and implements a range of programs that improve formal and informal physics education, impact public affairs, increase diversity, inform the public about the importance and excitement of physics research, and reach out to physicists around the world.
APS supports educators at all levels through programs, publications, and resources. APS's flagship education program, the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC), helps universities improve physics teacher preparation and significantly increase physics teacher graduation rates.
Physics is "international" in nature. Over 20% of all APS members are based outside the U.S. APS is committed to better understanding and serving our international members' needs and situations.
