How to Get Involved

Latest update: See here to learn about specific opportunities available within TUPA!

Why get involved with TUPA?

Contribute your voice and ideas. As TUPA grows, so do our options for what events to host and how to spend our funds to best support postdocs at Temple. Whether you just arrived at Temple or have been here for a few years, we want your input!

Flexibility to spend your time on what you care most about. TUPA is working on many different projects, including (virtual) social events, anti-racism, professional development, community outreach, and more.

Gain valuable, relevant experience. Taking an active role in TUPA looks great on a CV or resume.

Join a diverse, supportive group. As part of the TUPA community you can work with postdocs from departments across Temple. We are always excited to welcome new members!

Here are some easy ways to get involved:

The TUPA Committee meets monthly to plan TUPA events, organize advocacy efforts, and keep TUPA up and running. Any postdoc at Temple is eligible to join and no prior experience is needed. We would love to have you involved whether you have come to one event or twenty!
