Gender Minorities in Physics (GEMINI-P) is a student-led group supported by the department. It is open to membership from all department members, and seeks to educate about, and improve the quality of life, research, and education for those in physics and related fields who experience additional barriers due to their gender.

Founded in 2020, GEMINI-P is currently chaired by Ezri Wyman (she/her or they/them) and Becca Van Drunen (she/her). Our faculty advisor is Laura Fissel (she/her).
