Undergraduate Diversity and Inclusion in Physics

Undergraduate Diversity and Inclusion in Physics (UDIP) is a club committed to creating a welcoming environment for everyone within the physics department at UCSB. We work with the department and coordinate with faculty, students, and other clubs to provide resources, hold workshops, and plan other fun events for the UCSB physics community.

UDIP Merch Updates

Hello there! We're writing to let the physics community know that the UDIP merch team is officially beginning operations for the 2023-2024 academic year.

At the moment, we're about to place our order for all the traditional UDIP merch items. With the arrival of this shipment, we'll be restocked on all T-shirts, pullovers, zip-up jackets, and hats.

During the B session we will be selling merch in the Broida lobby on Mondays from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM, beginning on Monday, August 7th. We can only accept cash or Venmo. Any subsequent schedule changes will be announced primarily in the Physics Discord.

Finally, we have the option to order UCSB Physics branded facemasks and sweatpants. However, we currently don't have the required interest to meet the minimum number of items to complete the order. If you are interested in buying either of these items, please complete the attached survey before Friday, August 11th.
