BYU was recognized as the nation's top producer of trained physics teachers, according to the American Physical Society (APS).
BYU prepared a record 21 physics teachers in a single year. "Duane Merrell and his colleagues have an exemplary program that dovetails with BYU's enduring support for the teaching profession," said Monica Plisch, APS director of education and diversity. "We thank them for this very substantial contribution to alleviating the severe national shortage of physics teachers and serving as a model for other physics departments."
