In 1985, a disciplinary council in physics and astronomy became a formal part of CUR. Physicists Jim Cederberg, David Peak, and John Van Zytveld were responsible for bringing physics to CUR. It was a critical crossroads in the development of CUR as we know it today. The CUR Physics and Astronomy Division has been, and remains, very active in supporting research with undergraduates.
The goals of the Physics and Astronomy Division, outlined below, are accomplished by offering a wide variety of programs, awards, and services to our members that are a part of a CUR-wide effort to promote UR. The division advances the mission of CUR by focusing on UR issues in areas of physics and astronomy. The goals of the division are to support UR in physics and astronomy by:
