The sPHENIX detector at RHIC, together with the accelerator's unique
capabilities, will enable a spectrum of new or improved measurements
enhancing our understanding of the initial state for nuclear
collisions. Specifically, sPHENIX measurements in spin polarized
proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions will reveal more about how
partons behave in a nuclear environment, explore spin-spin and
spin-momentum correlations in the nucleon, and provide data to
investigate effects of non-universality. A potential upgrade to
sPHENIX with forward instrumentation could significantly enhance these
physics capabilities. The cold QCD nuclear physics program for the
proposed sPHENIX midrapidity detector as well as the enhanced program
enabled with forward upgrades will be presented.
