Women in Physics and Astronomy

Upcoming Events

WiPA Undergrad outreach event

WiPA is hosting “Life After Undergrad,” an annual event for undergraduate women interested in physics and related fields.

  • Date: Monday, October 15th, 2018
  • Time: 6:15-9:15pm
  • Location: John T. Tate Hall (room 201-20)
  • Event Description: The event will open with an informal dinner with current U of M female graduate students, post-docs, professors, area alumnae in industry/teaching jobs, and all area female undergraduates. This will be a good opportunity to meet and interact with other women in your field. After dinner we will have a short presentation introducing our panel speakers, their occupations and the paths taken after undergraduate education. This will be followed by a panel discussion on graduate school, research, teaching, and physics careers in industry. This will be an excellent opportunity to ask questions about graduate school applications, networking, job searches, etc.

Mission Statement

The Women in Physics and Astronomy (WiPA) group was established to raise awareness throughout the entire school of not only the important contributions women have made and continue to make in physics and astronomy, but also about the various mechanisms that make it difficult for women to make those contributions. Planned activities raise the visibility of women within the school and encourage interactions amongst female graduate students, faculty and/or research associates. It is hoped that the Women in Physics and Astronomy group will encourage a respectful climate for women in the school.
