Outreach: College Level

CUA faculty offer lectures and seminars at the college level both for students in the field and as keynote speakers. The CUA also offers online resources for physics students, including previously hosting the Virtual Journal, and currently most visibly through MIT’s Open Course Ware. The CUA has also run the TOPS program for many years, which served to invigorate physics undergraduates’ interest in teaching.
