The UCSD Department of Physics is committed to improving access to and inclusion in the physical sciences, be it students, scientists or the public at large. Physics faculty, staff and students coordinate various outreach activities with the goals of inspiring middle and high school students to pursue education and careers in Science, Techonology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields; increasing the scientific literacy of the public; and broadly disseminating our research. We also participate in diversity initiatives aimed at increasing the numbers and success of women and underrepresented minorities in the physical sciences, and at improving the climate for students and researchers in Physics.
