Physics Students Earn National Recognition


The Truman chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) has earned an Outstanding Chapter Award from the SPS National Office.

SPS is a professional association designed for students, and membership is open to anyone interested in physics and related fields. SPS operates within the American Institute of Physics, an umbrella organization for professional physical science societies.

SPS chapters are evaluated on their level of interaction with the campus community, the professional physics community, the public and with SPS national programs. The Outstanding Chapter Award recognizes high levels of outreach as well as unique approaches to fulfilling the mission of SPS to “help students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional community.”

This is the second year in a row the chapter has been recognized for its excellence as a top-tier student-led physical sciences organization. This recognition is given to fewer than 15 percent of all SPS chapters at colleges and universities in the U.S. and internationally.
