Welcome to the Society for Women in Physics at Ohio State!


Women are under-represented in physics at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The Society for Women in Physics (SWiP) creates a space for women in the physics community at Ohio State to support each other, to address relevant issues, and reach out to others.

SWiP will provide avenues for support for undergraduate and graduate women in the Ohio State physics community. It also will work to create a positive, supportive culture in the Physics Department and reach out beyond the Physics Department. It will hold bimonthly meetings which will include conversations about issues faced by women. We will also hold semesterly talks with women physicists about either their research or the experience of being a woman in physics. The society is aimed at undergraduate and graduate women in the Physics Department, but all are welcome.
