Building a Thriving Undergraduate Physics Program

February 6, 2015 - February 8, 2015 in Seattle, WA at the Marriott Seattle Waterfront

Registration is now closed.

The workshop begins at 7:00 pm on Friday, February 6 and ends at 12:00 pm on Sunday, February 8.  

The goal of the workshop is to assist departments in developing strategies for increasing enrollment of physics majors. Institutions are invited to send teams of 2-4 faculty members to analyze their current departmental situation and decide how to take actions that will help them sustainably achieve their goals.

Experienced faculty from departments that have recently seen large increases in their majors will facilitate workshop activities in small groups and present information on their own experiences through plenaries and case study talks.

Participants are encouraged to present a poster on their departmental undergraduate program.  Abstract submission information is provided with workshop registration.

The workshop will be held jointly with the 2015 PhysTEC Annual Conference.

Registration closes on January 22, 2015.
