The Food for Hungry Physics Students program was established by the American Institute of Physics (AIP), the AIP Foundation, and donors of SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma to assist student in completing their education who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and economic factors thereof. To help alleviate food insecurity concerns for students, the Society of Physics Students will provide $300 in financial support for chapters to start food cabinets for hungry physics students in their departments.
Chapter reports are a prime opportunity to showcase the activities of your chapter! Reflecting on the year’s events is important for the health, success and growth of your chapter. By looking back on your year, you will remember things to celebrate and keep for next year, and also see areas for improvement. In addition, your report and chapter information update is very important for the records of the SPS national office in the development of the annual SPS Information Handbook and new programs. Please take the time to tell us all about SPS (and Sigma Pi Sigma) at your school.
Look in your department mailboxes (and in inboxes) for the latest from the SPS National office in the annual fall mailer! Although this year may be unprecedented, #PhysicsDontStop! Community building and engagement is more important now than ever. See what opportunities SPS has in store for you and your chapter in the links below.
SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma has launched the new Alumni Engagement Program which provides an opportunity for all SPS members to connect with the supportive community of SPS alumni and Sigma Pi Sigma members in a number of ways! You can connect with alumni for professional development opportunities, to arrange speaking engagements at your next chapter or zone meeting, schedule an informational interview, job shadowing, and so much more!
