We are the Graduate Physics Organization for Research, Culture, and Education (G-PHORCE) at NYU. We exist to improve the graduate experience of our membership, which is comprised of all NYU physics graduate students at the NYC campus.
Founded in Fall 2019, G-PHORCE works to: facilitate communication between the membership and the physics department, represent its members to the department and the graduate school, improve department culture, ensure the department is an equitable environment that is inclusive and accessible to all, and host events to these ends.
If you would like to know more about our organization, the physics graduate program, or bring anything to our attention, please reach out to us! In particular, if you are interested in applying to NYU, get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss graduate life in the physics department and answer any questions.

The G-PHORCE executive board is comprised of eight members whose roles are laid out in The Charter. Additionally, the executive board may form Committees and appoint their Chairs. Executive board elections are held early each spring semester. Generally, the Center Representatives serve as the point people for communication with the membership, but feel free to reach out to any of us with any concerns or suggestions.

The mission of the NSBP is to promote the professional well-being of African American physicists and physics students within the international scientific community and within society at large.
At NYU, we are making an effort to create a student chapter of NSBP. This is open to all interested members of our community, including non-Black allies and alumni (sign-up form with NYU login).
