Our newsletter editor Diandra Leslie-Pelecky chose to focus on graduate education , as described in her editorial. The AAPT also has a standing committee devoted to this area, and some of their activities are described in an accompanying article.

The first major member-involvement project of the forum is now underway, with the launching of our database of undergraduate research positions. For now, it is available via e-mail, and the instructions for access are given in this issue.

The easiest way to navigate the Table of Contents (below) is to use the "Back" key on your screen after you read each article below.
