American Physics Society (APS) Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) at the United States Military Academy - West Point

We are sad to announce that due to the increasing COVID risk and the effects of required mitigation measures we have elected to defer hosting CUWiP until a later year which has yet to be determined. 



Welcome to the homepage for the 2022 APS CUWiP at the United States Military Academy - West Point! The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school, and professions in physics and to gain access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice and ideas. The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women.  

United States Military Academy

West Point could not be more excited to host the APS CUWiP 2022 at the United States Military Academy! West Point first offered admission to women in 1976, with the first graduating class in 1980. Since that time West Point has made great strides to include and highlight women in all aspects of academy life. 

Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Physics

West Point's theme for the conference this year is Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Physics. The conference will center on the ideas of physics, inclusion, standing out and standing up. 


*COVID Disclaimer: Based on current guidelines, proof of vaccination is required.
