Our website now houses a variety of outreach and mentoring resources.

The website Hispanic American Physicists: Past, Present and Future ( recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of Hispanic Americans who are both near the end of a long and successful career and those near the beginning and who already show significant promise. An important factor of these brief bios is that they lead to more resources, so that students can start here and follow the trail to learn more about scientists who they may not normally encounter in their studies.

We made the decision to grow this list of prominent Hispanic physicists at a rate that insures that no fewer than one-third of these highlighted physicists are women.

Another resource is the StudentGateway which tries to anticipate student questions from high school through graduate school. Included are study and career sites, general physics resources, and sites devoted to women in physics.

In a similar way, the FacultyGateway is designed to address the questions of Hispanic American faculty as they move into the world of academia or industry. And the site also houses resources for faculty who are trying to meet the needs and respond to the challenges of under-represented groups as they begin the study of physics.
