Testimonial

Charla LambertPENN-PORT Alumni, Charla Lambert states,” The PennPORT program connected me with a community of postdocs who, in addition to being successful researchers, enjoyed thinking about pedagogy, mentorship, student engagement, and professional development. Building a network of such colleagues who are multidimensional in their professional aspirations was an instrumental part of my postdoc experience”.
