Physics department selected as next recipient of Rick Rewards

Faculty and staff from the Department of Physics were recognized as the next recipient of Rick Rewards on May 8. The department was honored for the innovative research it is conducting, including recent grants from NASA, one for over $100,000 for future moon/Mars missions and one for $2 million to study the sun; the recently revitalized Doctor of Philosophy in applied mathematics, physics track, program; and its work bringing the campus community together during the April 2024 solar eclipse.

Rick Rewards is awarded each month by President Rick Muma to show his appreciation for the efforts of the campus community.
