The SPS Slack workspace is open to everyone at the University of Michigan with an interest in physics. It is a great place to:

  • Get to know your fellow physics students.

  • Join class-specific groups to discuss class material.

  • Ask your peers about undergraduate research.

  • Share the latest physics memes.

And much, much more!

Standing in Solidarity

In light of the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, many of us are struck by feelings of anger, pain, exhaustion, and fear of the abhorrent face of racism in our communities. We at SPS share in many of those feelings and have gathered resources to help us move forward in a both thoughtful and action oriented way. Please refer to this curated list on 10 ways to be anti-racist from MESA, as well as this crowd-sourced collection of resources for responding to the death of George Floyd.
