Climate and Diversity Award
In 2018, Kristin Dreyer and Eric Hudson from physics won the Climate and Diversity Award together with Latisha Franklin.
Faculty and peer mentors provide institutional knowledge together with professional and personal support.
Student Organizations and Resources
Our student organizations are strong pillars of our physics community. In addition to link to their website, you can find a list of important resources at Penn State and beyond.
Everyone deserves an environment where you are safe and welcome. If something happens, small or big, know that our physics community wants to improve and we have multiple channels for reporting and for speaking up.
