  • Providing professional development opportunities through in-person and web-based workshops, small group discussions, and personal consultations;

  • Working to build community among postdoctoral scholars;

  • Serving as advocate for postdoctoral scholars and as liaison between the postdoctoral community and the university administration;

  • Helping prepare postdoctoral scholars for the next steps in their career, whether it be in academia, industry, government, or other settings.
