Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.

The Physics Department encourages and supports the advancement of women in physics. We are dedicated to success for all of our students and support them in their efforts. Many women have taken leadership roles at CSU. We are proud to have a female dean for the college of Natural Sciences, Dean Jan L. Nerger and President of the University, President Joyce McConnell. The Women in Physics student group is active and includes involvement with graduate students. In addition to providing a forum for women's needs in the context of getting a BS in Physics, the group is also involved in community service. We continue to strive for ways to welcome, support, and enhance the professional development of women in physics and all groups that are underrepresented in physics.

Please include the name of faculty or staff member and an email they can be reached at for further questions.
