In 1986 Professor and Mrs. Guy Forman provided the initial endowment to establish an award at Vanderbilt University to be given annually to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the teaching of physics at the undergraduate level. The endowment has grown significantly and continues to grow through generous contributions from friends, colleagues, and Dr. Forman's former students.

What is wrong with physics?

  • Lowest number of BS degrees in 40 years, but seems to be leveling off.
  • High percentage of foreign PhD students in many departments.

What are some ways out of this situation?

  • A way might be curriculum innovation

Physics and Mathematics:
They are like two functions that have always been defined on the same domain, now
they seem to have a greater overlap.

  • How did it happen?
  • How does it work?
  • What will be the result?
