Physics students win national recognition

The FIU chapter of the Society of Physics Students has won an Outstanding Chapter Award from the SPS National Office for the seventh time in eight years. The chapter has been recognized for its excellence as a top-tier student-led physical sciences organization – a distinction given to fewer than 15 percent of all SPS chapters – with only 103 of 829 chapters honored for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The 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.”

Advised by Pete Markowitz, SPS is a professional association designed for students and membership is open to anyone interested in physics and related fields.
