The 2021 southeast regional CUWiP will no longer be held at UCF.

The CUWiP offers an excellent opportunity for further advance professional development of undergraduate women! Through hosting CUWiP, we will provide a place for women to gain a better understanding of various career options, allow them to interact with and learn from other female physicists from the southeast region, and to excite women about physics through presentations about the latest advances made in the field.
