Physicists for Inclusion in Science (“PhIS”, pronounced “fizz”) grew out the “Women in Physics” group. We support members of underrepresented groups as they pursue their careers. The group meets several times a term for discussion and to organize events and activities. The group consists of students, faculty and staff in the Physics department, alumni, and other physicists on campus or in the community.
Let it be acknowledged that Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary’s River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855 (Kalapuya etc. Treaty), Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (https://www.grandronde.org/) and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (http://ctsi.nsn.us/).
