SWPS is a student group run by female graduate students in Physics, Astronomy, Earth and Planetary Sciences and Biophysics at the University of California, Berkeley. Our goals are to encourage women and minorities to study the physical sciences and to create a friendly and supportive environment in these departments for all students.

SWPS hosts a number of events throughout the semester that brings our community together. We also engage in a variety of outreach opportunities in the Bay Area.

We welcome all who experience life through the lens of woman in body, spirit, identity – past, present, future, and fluid. SWPS is a gender-inclusive community and we welcome anybody that identifies as female.

To get announcements and information via email, join our mailing lists. And of course, find us onĀ Facebook!
