About University of Arizona Department of Physics

In the Department of Physics, we recognize the importance of fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for faculty, staff members and students. To achieve our goals of excellence in research, academics and service to the community, it is essential to have diversity, equity and inclusion in our daily work and study. Many of our members lead and support a significant number of activities on improving diversity and inclusion in STEM fields over a range of career stages. In 2018, the University of Arizona was named a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) by the U.S. Department of Education, in addition to our longstanding status as an American Indian and Alaska Native-Serving Institution. The University of Arizona is also a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), an association of leading comprehensive research universities distinguished by the breadth and quality of their programs of research and graduate education. Out of about 250 HSI, only three are also members of AAU, and we are one of those three! This makes the University of Arizona very unique in serving Hispanic and Native American with excellence in research.

“I am impressed with how patient the researchers, engineers, faculty, grad students, and all staff are. They take time to explain things in detail and care about communicating the big picture- not just the small task at hand. ”
