Chapter reports are a prime opportunity to showcase the activities of your chapter! Reflecting on the year’s events is important for the health, success and growth of your chapter. By looking back on your year, you will remember things to celebrate and keep for next year, and also see areas for improvement. In addition, your report and chapter information update is very important for the records of the SPS national office in the development of the annual SPS Information Handbook and new programs. Please take the time to tell us all about SPS (and Sigma Pi Sigma) at your school.

Undergraduate Physics and Astronomy students from over 300 chapters self-identified mental health as one of the most important issues they face at the 2019 Physics Congress. The well-being of all students is a primary concern to us as we aim to serve all undergraduate physics and astronomy students.
