EP3 Team

Meet the EP3 Team

The EP3 Project team is working to create the Effective Practices for Physics Programs Guide, to train physics program leaders and reviewers in how to use the Guide through workshops and online communities, to conduct research on the impact of the Guide, and to develop a plan for ongoing review and improvement of the Guide.

If you’d like to talk to us about the project, please contact one of our co-chairs, David Craig or Mike Jackson .
