About CUWiP

The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas. The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women and gender minorities.

The 2022 CUWiP conference will be held in Loomis Laboratory, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Friday, January 21 - Sunday, January 23, 2022.
