he Climate and Community Committee (CCC) brings our department's students, faculty, and staff together to discuss how to improve our work and social climate. The committee makes recommendations for changes in all aspects of department life, from curriculum to social events. It first convened in Spring of 2020 and has been meeting bi-weekly since.
All members of the community should feel free to contact a representative of the CCC at any time.
The current committee liaisons are:

Interested in joining the CCC as a member? Submit a short application here! The deadline for the fall semester is October 27, but we will still consider applications after the deadline on a rolling basis.
The expected time commitment is approximately 1 hour every other week, and members of the CCC are compensated financially. We are trying to maximize representation among all members of the Physics and Astro community, so we especially encourage first-year students, students in BCBP, and students who have taken PHYS 116/117 to apply!
The meeting time for this semester is every other Friday from 9-10am in A126. Anyone is welcome to attend and learn about the CCC’s work, not just members!
