Information about the Lawrence Physics Program
- Presentation at 1998 AAPT/APS/AIP Physics Revitalization Conference: Building Undergraduate Physics Programs for the Twenty-First Century The Lawrence Department of Physics was one of about a dozen departments invited to present case studies at this conference. Attendees were invited to send teams to engage in brainstorming about the revitalization of their own programs, exploiting ideas and guidance presented by the several case studies.
- Strengthening Undergraduate Physics At Lawrence Invited talk delivered at the April 2001 APS Meeting in Washington, DC.
- Final Report of Project SPIN-UP This 140-page final report (January 2003) titled "Strategic Programs for Innovations in Undergraduate Physics: Project Report" summarizes the findings of an NSF-supported AAPT/APS study that examined several successful physics programs around the United States. Appendix U (pages 139-140) describes features of the Lawrence program in physics. Note that this link points to a page on the AAPT website, not a page on the Lawrence website.
- Lawrence Self-Study of 2005 This link points to a large self-study of the Lawrence Department of Physics written in 2005 in preparation for an outside review designed to help the Department look forward to and plan for its future as Professors Brandenberger and Cook moved to half-time positions before retiring fully in 2008.
