Thanks to Eugenia Etkina, Rutgers has been named a member of the PhysTEC "5+ Club" for graduating five or more physics teachers in the past academic year. This puts Rutgers in the 99th percentile among institutions for physics teacher preparation. PhysTEC is a joint venture of the American Physical Society and the American Association of Physics Teachers dedicated to improving education of future physics teachers. See https://www.phystec.org for more info.
Rutgers is one of only eight departments receiving this distinction. We also had the second largest number of physics teachers graduated.
