Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP)

RIT is honored to be one of eleven university/college regional host sites for the 2018 American Physical Society (APS) Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP). More than 200 undergraduate women from the northeast US will spend 3 days—January 12-14, 2018—on the RIT campus. They will attend laboratory tours, panel discussions, networking events and learn about research opportunities and career paths through peer interaction. Your donation will help pay for housing, meals, panel speakers, and general support for this women in science experience.

Learning Assistant (LA) Program

In its 4th successful year, the Learning Assistant program continues to transform science courses, creating environments whereby students engage in small group active learning. The collaborative problem solving is facilitated by a student LA, serving as a peer-to-peer guide to a successful learning experience. The LAs are paid to prepare exercises, hold recitations, grade exams, and most importantly, engage in an introduction to a STEM teaching experience.  Your donation will help pay for student stipends, and will contribute to broadening the LA program to additional campus departments, offering students this life-changing experience.
