"Early Career Kickstart" Testimonial

This was a very valuable ‘check in’ for new faculty. I found that a number of concerns I was starting to have were addressed by Dr. Gyetko. The day was most helpful in two ways: (1) It made me attend to what I am currently doing and what needs focus; and (2) it reminded me/introduced me to numerous resources that will support my growth.
