The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is starting a journal club next term (Spring 2017) for both undergraduate and graduate students. The club will meet once a week to discuss the journal article for that week, or do an activity related to the article. The topic of the club spring term will be women and minorities in STEM. The reading list will be available by the end of Winter term, and a doodle poll will be sent around Week 9 to  determine the best time to have the meetings.

Anyone interested in joining the email list should email Lindsey at loberhel at uoregon dot edu.
