I am a co-founder of the Compass Project
at UC Berkeley. The Compass Project is a program that supports diversity in the physical sciences by bringing together a community of undergraduate and graduate students through exceptional teaching and learning experiences. For the undergraduates, the main focus of Compass is an immersive two-week summer program for incoming freshmen that extends into a semester-long physics problem solving and modeling course, as well as continued mentoring and support throughout their college careers. For the graduate students, Compass provides a unique opportunity to advance their teaching skills and a platform for discussing issues related to physics education and diversity.
- Compass was featured in the January 2013 Physics Today Editor's online picks.
- In 2012 the Compass Project was awarded one of the APS's inaugural awards for ``improving undergraduate physics education."
