In December, DePaul's chapter of the Society of Physics Students
won the Outstanding Chapter Award from the organization's national office.
This is the first time the chapter has been recognized for its excellence as a top-tier student-led physical sciences organization. This designation is given to less than 10 percent of all SPS chapters at colleges and universities in the United States and internationally. 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.”
The Society of Physics Students 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.
