Representation and Advocacy

The PDA can serve as a persuasive representative of USC’s postdoctoral population within and outside the university. Internally, we maintain collaborative and constructive relationships with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, as well as with various Centers that provide useful services for postdocs. Externally, we participate in the activities of the National Postdoctoral Association and cultivate relationships with postdoctoral associations at other institutions.
