Alumni & Friends

Welcome Physical Sciences Alumni and Friends!

The Physical Sciences Division has over 9,000 graduate alumni worldwide, and we are honored to count you among them. PSD faculty frequently give Harper Lectures in cities all around the globe, and the division hosts salon-style events where alumni and friends can engage with faculty in a more intimate setting. If you’d like to receive invitations to these events and other communications from the division, please share your contact information with us.

Through the University of Chicago Alumni Association, you can update your address, learn about events, and network with your fellow graduates of the division and the University.

You can also stay updated on the Physical Sciences Division through our publications. Inquiry can be read online and is featured in the UChicago Magazine once a year. The Departments of Chemistry and Physics publish their own newsletters as well. You can read the Chemists Club and Chicago Physics One online or sign up to receive a hard copy in the mail.

Whether you’re planning a visit to Chicago or want to see if anything is going on in your home city, the University campus and event calendar lists lectures and events that are sure to be of interest. Please consider dropping in for a visit if you’re in the neighborhood. We’d love to see you and hear about what’s happening in your world.

The generosity of alumni and friends of the Physical Sciences Division supports the groundbreaking research and teaching of Chicago’s scientists. Gifts to the PSD support graduate students, fund the renovation of laboratories, allow us to recruit and retain the most outstanding faculty, and help advance the physical sciences in countless other ways.
