PhD Career Ladder Program

What is PCLP?

PCLP is short for PhD Career Ladder Program, and was founded in 2015 by GCA member Nadia Jaber and Jennifer DeLeon. PCLP is a step-by-step peer mentorship program to discover different career options.

PCLP meets monthly for 9 months over the academic year, beginning anew every Fall. For news on the first meeting for the 2017-2018 run, check this page for updates.
