What Does the Task Force Plan to Do?

The Task Force efforts are grouped into five categories:

  1. Raise the consciousness of the physics community about the problems facing undergraduate physics and why solving those problems is crucial to the health of the physics profession.
  2. Develop a catalog of case studies (with analysis) of departments that have successfully improved their undergraduate physics programs.
  3. Coordinate and publicize efforts by individuals, departments, and professional organizations to improve undergraduate physics.
  4. Provide advice and ideas to professional organization, funding agencies, and the physics community about revitalizing undergraduate physics.
  5. Work with similar groups in other scientific and engineering disciplines to improve all aspects of undergraduate science, mathematics, engineering and technology education.
