Ram Pandit ('06-'07): Agricultural Economics
I am writing you from Australia to thank you and your year long PPF
program that essentially helped me to secure a professional job despite
lack of teaching experience at Auburn. I have recently joined The
University of Western Australia as an assistant professor. Have been
involved in teaching and learning workshops here and found PPF program a
real bridge between a typical PhD graduate and assistant professor in
terms of exposing to university teaching and learning environment.
Casey Breslin ('06-'07): Kinesiology
I defended my dissertation in early May, and I will walk in August. I loved the Biggio Center experience, and I felt that it was a valuable experience that made me a better teacher, researcher, and job candidate. I had two interviews for faculty positions at Bowling Green State University and Old Dominion University, and I received both offers.
