The Society of Physics Students fills an important need in the physics community by mentoring undergraduate students. I often feel that without SPS, this would largely be a “forgotten” population, with many organizations focusing on K-12 and many others on grad school and beyond, but no other strongly focused on helping undergraduates with an interest in physics. As advisors, you are the leaders on the frontline of our effort. You understand and appreciate our mission.
I feel it is critical that someone with strong ties to SPS, hopefully someone who has served in a chapter advisor role, leads the national organization. As I have decided to return to academia in January, I am asking you to consider if you might be interested in answering the call to serve as Director of SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma. Particularly if you also have experience as a department chair or other administrative position, I hope you will consider this opportunity. You would have the chance to guide and develop programs for the students on the national and international stage.
We seek an experienced education professional and dynamic leader to fill the position of Director of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society. If you think that could be you, I urge you to apply. Thank you for all that you do!
