The Pichler Initiative
A gift from Joseph Pichler, MBA ’63, PhD ’66, and Susan Pichler in 2007 established the Pichler Initiative on Professional Development. Led by professor Harry L. Davis, the initiative helps support activities that promote professional development for students in the PhD Program, including helping PhD students develop stronger writing, presentation, and job-market skills. With more than 30 programs each year, the Pichler Initiative supports the PhD Program’s collaborative community by helping to develop cohort-based and cross-cohort programs, fostering peer support at all levels of the PhD Program.
