The physics department at Reading University is under serious threat of closure in the Universities latest round of cutbacks, with closure threatened as soon as 2010. Those who currently study at the department appreciate how valuable the department and its research and teaching are to the community, the country, and to the future of the world.
We do not want to see this department close, we do not wish to be the last to benefit from the amazing facilities at Reading Physics, a centre of excellence in many areas of the subject, and with top links to other departments, and other universities.
Please help us by signing the petition on the following link, it has been set up by the Reading University Students Union and the Reading University Physics Society: http://www.petitiononline.com/RUPhys/
I hope that you will help us, whether you like physics or not, we need as many names as we can get, there is no need to comment, all we need is your name!
