There are many ways you can stay connected to our Physics Department.

Generous donations from our alumni and friends of the program have helped the Physics Department achieve the prestige that is associated with it today. Currently ranked 13th in the United States, we are striving to become the nation’s premier department of physics. In order to achieve this goal, it is important that we establish a secure base of funding that allows us to excel in the areas of physics that we practice and that provides an incisive and enriching education to our students. The aid from our donors has gone towards recruiting the best faculty and students to our department, developing new and academically rigorous programs, and funding ground-breaking research conducted by our faculty and students. Our department would like to thank those of you who have donated, who are considering donating, and all others who have continued to support the Physics program throughout the years.
