Philosophy of Graduate Education at Rochester: Depth and breadth

Philosophy of Graduate Education at Rochester: Depth and breadth

----Some controversies are only misunderstanding---The Big Picture - University of Rochester The smallest major research university (among the 29 tier-one research universities) in terms of students and faculty size (but not in terms of research funding and facilities) About 3600 undergraduates (900 per year) About 3000 graduate students About 300 faculty in the College (River Campus) About 300 faculty in the Medical School (also Eastman School of Music, and Laboratory for Laser Energetics). Departments at Rochester are about half the size of departments at larger universities. Individually we are small, collectively we are large and diverse. Individual large departments usually fragment into subfields which rarely communicate with each other. However, having small departments can be advantageous; Promotes collaboration between departments and research laboratories - all of UR facilities become available. And, everybody counts, so Aim to provide a supportive environment to our faculty, 1 graduate students, and undergraduates. Philosophy of Education: Depth, Breadth and Diverse National Academy of Science Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy (COSEPUP) recommended in a 1995 report on Reshaping the Graduate Education of Scientists and Engineers [1d] that: To produce more versatile scientists and engineers, graduate programs should provide options that allow students to gain a wider variety of skills. Greater versatility can be promoted on two levels. On the academic level, students should be discouraged from overspecializing. Those planning research careers should be grounded in the broad fundamentals of their fields and be familiar with several subfields. Such breadth might be much harder to gain after graduation. On the level of career skills, there is value in

experiences that supply skills desired by both academic and 2 nonacademic employers. Philosophy of Education: Training Future Leaders The 1995 National Academy report added that the future training of graduate students should include especially the ability to communicate complex ideas to non-specialists and the ability to work well in teams. Off-campus internships in industry or government can lead to additional skills and exposure to authentic job situations. (I would add, those who fund both education and scientific research must be kept informed of 3 latest developments) One of the most important long term influences on the reputation of a scientific institution is the impact of its Ph.D. graduates. Good mentoring pays off. 4 Department of Physics and Astronomy At the University of Rochester Chair - Arie Bodek Director of Undergraduate Studies - Nick Bigelow (TA and RA support) Assistant Chair - Sondra Anderson

Opening its doors to undergraduate minorities such as Jews and Oriental Americans - while Ivy League schools had quotas. This propelled the UR to become a leading institution for very talented undergraduates - --And later B. Robert Marshak, Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy (later to become president of CCNY) and started the Rochester International Conferences in High Energy Physics - inviting top European, Russian, Indian, Japanese scientist to the USA, and encouraging talented foreign students to come to Rochester (in the height of the cold war). This conference is still called the Rochester conference.This resulted in scientists abroad encouraging their best graduate students to come to Rochester , and Rochester becoming known as a leading International InstitutionAnd later 7 C. Win-win - Emphasis on excellence, while others got mired in elitism Rochester Graduate Nobel Winners in Physics Breadth and Depth and Diverse .

It is anticipated that $30.8 million will be available to fund thirty eight new and renewal awards. Deadline(s): 04/29/2004 22 PAS has encouraged majors to become double majors. At present, double-majors consist of 50% of

our undergraduate class (10 out of 20). Mostly Math, some Optics, some Music, etc. We practice what we preach - we encourage opportunities for educational breadth and depth. Know everything about something and know something about everything.

Certificate in College Teaching of Physics (5 each year) for future faculty members: A program to train graduate students to teach

a course as a full instructor (for teaching careers) Graduate TAs are trained during the academic year as TAs in an introductory undergraduate physics course Subsequently, they teach the same course as a full instructor in the summer session. As a result of this program, some PhDs have gone directly into faculty positions (e.g., at SUNY Geneseo). Mostly our graduates first build up their research career as postdocs. 31 What about communicating with general public - We run a variety of outreach programs for Undergraduates (REU), High School Students, High School Teachers, and the General Public And Adam Frank, Professor of Physics and Astrophysics at Rochester received the 1999 Popular Writing Award of the from the American Astronomical Society.

The one student from Optics who did a PhD with Nick Bigelow in Physics is now a faculty member. The few students from material science or optics who are interested in working with physics typically do so because they are interested in a research academic career. Most academic positions in optics or material science are within physics departments. Therefore, knowledge of sub-fields like statistical mechanics is greatly beneficial. 38 Joint (or dual) PhD -standard college rules: Current participants Optics and Physics (2), Physics and Optics (2) will have one standing committee (instead of 4 different committees) Requested first by 2 students from Optics who are interested in a future academic career (following in the footsteps of Bob Knox). Who knows-> may double the

number of Rochester Nobel Prizes in Physical Sciences in the 21st century? -> Physics and Neuroscience (1) one student in Physics who is working with Professors Teitel (Physics) and Pouget (BCS) ->Physics and History of Science (2) - being standardized now Requested by 2 students in Physics- Our future science writers and connection to the public, MD/PhD in Physics (new) (as part of MD/PhD U of R NSF grant that funded MD/PhD Dave Mathews) -Joint PhD in Chemical Physics (proposal out for funding) In previous years, joint PhD degrees with Physics were also awarded in Electrical Engineering and Physics (student in ECE who was interested in academic career (in Quantum Information) Physics and Philosophy (student in Physics who was interested in a broader education) 39 (separate committee for each individual) Small Rochester campus fosters interdisciplinary collaboration between River Campus, LLE, Medical Center. The Physics of Medical Imaging has resulted in three Nobel prizes. First in Physics, Second in Chemistry and Third in Medicine. Last year (all given to physicists). This is true interdisciplinarity. Will the next breakthrough be in the application of fundamental science to the biology of the brain? Biological Physics is a growing science, Medical Optics and Physics is a growing science, Biomedical Engineering is a growing science. The university is putting ALL its capital resources over next 10 year $40M into the new BME /Optics building with the hope that it will be a leader in this new interdisciplinary field. Note that people do research - not buildings. First effort at joint recruiting of a Biological Physicist/Optical Physicist has started - between BME, Physics, Optics, Neuroscience and BCS department (with BME and Physics contributing one position each). 40 Summary: The Big Picture: We are entering the 21st century. Most large corporations have greatly reduced their research efforts in

the physical sciences (Bell Labs, IBM Labs, Kodak, Xerox). However, a small institution like Rochester can be successful by capitalizing on the geographical proximity of its small departments, and the collegial collaborative atmosphere within the University. This is how new ideas are exchanged and new discoveries are made. Our colleagues, like Professor Boyd and Director Wayne Knox, Dean LeBlanc, and others, share in the overall vision - one small step at a time (and a few large steps when we can afford them). Some of us are interested in major discoveries - Nobel Prizes, etc. Some are interested in major new innovative practical applications and revenues from new patents. We can do both while keeping in mind our responsibility to undergrad and grad. Education, as well as to society (and the U.S. Taxpayer). And if we do not keep up and improve, other institutions will. 41 The past does not guarantee the future (but the present could) New Ideas (and old recycled ideas from different fields) require many people to propose and implement. A few of the many examples related to inter- disciplinary research Adding Physics to BS/MS program at Rochester (was part of general NYS approved BS/MS program at Rochester but not know to students, so nobody took it). Two students (one in Particle Physics and one in Quantum Optics) wanted to do it, they got department (Lynne Orr) to clarify the requirements and put them on the Web. The two students graduated in 2003. BS/MS in Medical Physics - Proposed to by Prof, M. Schell in Radiology at request of two UR employees in Strong (who have BS but not MS in Physics). Now being implemented through a collaborative effort of Physics, Radiology and Biology as part of general approved NYS BS/MS program in Physics). To begin next year, aim at 5 students/year. 42 Clarification of Optics-Physics Ph.D (on the books as part of general Joint PhD program approved by NY State for

Rochester). Clarification asked for by two Optics students to Boyd, initial outline written by Boyd, expanded on in meeting with between Bodek, Boyd, Bigelow Wayne Knox and Gary Wicks. Detailed course schedule and resolving conflicts worked out by Bodek, two additional Physics students also interested in doing it. Joint Recruiting of a senior Optical/Neuro/Biophysicist Svoboda. Proposed by Wayne Knox to Bodek, now being coordinated by BME, Physics, Optics, Neuroscience and BCS. Requires resources from all departments. Just started Tentative plan, one senior appointment in BME (Svoboda) one Junior appointment in Physics, joint appointments in Optics, --just started to figure out the small steps in this very big initiative 43 Even bigger initiatives also require coordination and must be done in small steps across several disciplines. Everything is coupled. For Example: New buildings. (1) Currently Optics resides in the Space Science building which was initially built for Astronomy (note the telescope on the roof). The Optics Annex was build by DOE as the Particle Physics building. (2) LLE was proposed and built by Mechanical Engineering Dept. (3) Plan for new BME-Optics building - initiated by Wayne Knox. (a) Relocate faculty and staff in Physics Cyclotron Lab building (built by DOE for particle Physics) -currently being investigated by Physics. Building to be demolished in Fall 2004. (b) BME and Optics to share new building. Justification is new interdisciplinary research, 10% funding from foundation for BME, 40% funding from College (by delaying undergraduate Dorm renovations). Remaining 50% ($15M) still to be raise. (c) Keep track of the big picture - everything is inter-related 44 Joint or Interdisciplinary Doctor of Philosophy Degrees - College Rules The following are the College rules for a joint PhD degree

(from the Regulations Section of the College Graduate Bulletin page 55) " Departments/programs authorized to offer work leading to the Ph.D. degree also may cooperate to offer work toward the degree on an interdepartmental basis. Joint work is supervised by an ad hoc committee for a single student (one member of the ad hoc committee must be from outside the two programs of study). Each ad hoc committee is appointed by the University dean of graduate studies upon nomination by the Graduate Committee of the college or colleges in which the departments/programs are located. A proposal outlining how degree requirements will be fulfilled along with supporting documentation (including program of study, proposed plan for qualifying examination(s), up-to-date advising record, proposed thesis topic) must be submitted for approval before the student is admitted to candidacy. For a continuing formalized interdisciplinary program (i.e., Visual and Cultural Studies, Neuroscience), a standing committee acts as a "department" and supervises the program requirements for its students. " Note: appointed by the University Dean of Graduate 45 Physics and Optics have proposed to the Graduate Dean, for the four students who wish to do joint PhDs (two from Optics and now two in Physics when they heard about the Optics proposal), that instead of having each ad hoc committee separately appointed by the University dean of graduate studies, the four students be supervised by the same standing committee, as follows: The committee to supervise the Physics-Optics Joint PhD program includes two co-chairs (one appointed by the Chair of Physics and Astronomy and one appointed by the Director of The Institute of Optics) which in 2003-4 are Professors N. Bigelow ([email protected]) and R. Boyd

( [email protected] ), the two chairs of the Preliminary Examination Committees in both departments (R. Hagen [email protected]) in Physics and G. Wicks [email protected] in Optics in 2003-3004), and the graduate student advisers in both departments (E. Blackman [email protected] in Physics, and G. Agrawal [email protected] in Optics in 2003-2004). The Dean of Graduate Studies has accepted the suggestion that the ad hoc committees for all these four students, and any future students, be a standing committee appointed by the chairs. 46 Eventually - every case is individual - The committee decides. However, So the request to the faculty from Physics and Optics was for Helpful Suggestions to the Committee To clarify a mis-understanding - The joint PhD program has always existed - we are trying to get it to be more streamlined when there is more that one student participating. Input from faculty and graduate students has always been welcome. As usual in every process, some peoples comments are well informed, and some are not as well informed. We count on good leadership to sort these out. For example, the College Graduate Dean could appoint a committee that includes a subset of the joint appointments in Physics and Optics (currently including N, Bigelow (Physics), J. Eberly (Physics), Emil Wolf (Physics), C. Stroud (Optics), G. Agrawal (Optics), R. Boyd (Optics), or T. Foster (Radiology, Physics and Optics, who can also serve as the the outside member of the committee). Other members could include the graduate advisors in each department and the chairs of the prelim committees in each department, as well as the student 47 advisors in each department.

Students level of preparation varies; therefore, each student progresses at his/her own pace. Advanced students can take second year courses and pass the prelim examination after 1 year. Typical students take the prelim exam after 1.5 years. Students who have not taken certain undergraduate courses can take upper level undergraduate courses, if needed, and take the prelim exam after 2 years. All students are expected to pass and continue on towards a Ph.D. Our retention rate is high, and the few students who leave the Ph.D. program do so for personal reasons (e.g. changing fields). The number of available research positions is such that all entering students are expected to join research groups as Research Assistants after one year as Teaching Assistants. The size of the entering class is determined under the assumption that all students will pass the prelim exam and continue on to a Ph.D. - i.e. it is not determined by the need for TAs. Note that in some large state schools the number of available research positions can accommodate only half of the entering class, and thus half of the entering students are expected to leave. 51 Each year, we aim at a class of 15-20.
