College Conversations: Spotlight on Diversity

The College of Arts and Sciences's College Converstions: Spotlight on Diversity series continues Thursday, Sept. 23 with "Nuclear Physics in Eastern Tennessee."

The Nuclear Physics in Eastern TN (NPET) Fellowship is a virtual undergraduate internship program at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Mentored by UT professors and ORNL scientists, students will be able to make contributions to leading research in neutrino physics, quantum information sciences, nuclear astrophysics, and more. Students will gain valuable skills needed for a successful career in STEM fields.

The program is designed to increase diversity in physics. Program mentors believe the teams required to solve the nation’s most pressing science challenges are those that bring together a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives. Nadia Foman, associate professor in the UT Department of Physics will discuss the program’s roots and its impact on diversity in the field of physics.
