APS makes resources available for physicists in academia, whether they are faculty looking to bolster their departments, graduate students seeking mentorship, or other physics and STEM professionals in higher education.
EP3 aims to help physics programs respond to challenges and recognize strengths. Successful physics departments engage in cyclic self-reflection on their processes and outcomes to guide decisions and actions. By embracing shared action and ownership, they engage appropriate stakeholders and use data and a clear sense of departmental mission to identify problems and formulate and enact plans to improve their departments.
Undergraduate physics faculty and mentors can find resources to recruit and mentor students as well as strengthen their physics courses and programs.
Graduate students and graduate-level educators in physics may discover networks and resources to advance their research and teaching.
APS’s Physics Education Statistics reports on the challenges and opportunities in the physics community, focusing on demographic information for physics degree recipients from US-based institutions.
In 2023, the Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop will be available through PhysPort.org, where you can find upcoming events and helpful resources for every aspect of a new faculty member's career in physics and astronomy.
For questions, please contact APS New Faculty Workshops.
