About Us

Our Mission Statement

“We, the Graduate Physics and Astronomy Students, seek to combine the intellectual rigor of scientific discourse with a sustainable student support network. Our meetings provide a platform for open scientific discussion of research and expression of opinion. We inspire collaboration and fellowship amongst Physics and Astronomy Faculty and Students. We encourage connections between the students and faculty from other departments and institutions. By fostering a community built on intellectual, professional, and social interactions, we provide graduate students the freedom to grow as scientists.”

What We Do

The main purpose of GPAS is to provide resources for graduate students to foster a community between students across all subfields of physics and to develop professional skills that prepare students for a variety of positions. This is achieved through various social and skill development events throughout the year, including an annual conference.
