The APS Award for Improving Undergraduate Physics Education recognizes best practices in undergraduate physics education.  This award was initiated in 2011 by COE in order to recognize physics departments and/or undergraduate-serving programs in physics that support best practices in education at the undergraduate level. Programs are recognized for 3 years, acknowledged on the APS website, awarded a plaque, announced in APS News, and recognized at an APS national meeting. These awards are intended to acknowledge commitment to inclusive, high-quality physics education for undergraduate students, and to catalyze departments and programs to make significant improvements.  The annual deadline for departments to apply for the award is July 15. Full details can be found on the undergraduate faculty award page.
