SPS Past Boards

From Physics
Jump to: navigation, search


While the Society of Physics Students at Berkeley has been active for decades, it did not take its contemporary structure until its revival in 2013 after a multi-year hiatus. Since then, SPS at Berkeley has represented hundreds of physics and other physical science students.

The SPS officer board is elected every spring, and terms track the UC Berkeley school year (fall, spring). The board comprises a nuclear board mandated by the ASUC (president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer) as well as an ancillary board with positions which are generally determined by the previous board prior to the election. In practice, many positions have been occupied by multiple officers simultaneously.
