From championing the increasing diversity of physics to addressing its role in solving some of society's biggest challenges, the Department of Physics will celebrate a century of physics at Temple University this April 1.

Alumni, faculty, students and friends of the department can join with us for a virtual and inperson symposium and an in-person reception in the Science Education and Research Center on Temple's Main Campus. Starting at 2:00 p.m., talks will highlight the past, present, and future of the Physics Department at Temple.

From faculty research to the career success of our undergraduate and graduate students, there is so much happening within the department. Our alumni continue to excel in their fields and to support today's faculty and students. 

The future of our department is indeed very bright.
