While his career has been distinguished by the figurative building of bridges around the world, Bundy routinely relies on tools of the trade most commonly associated with the liberal arts education he ultimately received during his pursuit of bachelor’s and master’s degrees in History, conferred in 1993 and 1996, respectively.

Diversity

The development of critical thought is one of the cornerstones of the University. Such critical thought is dependent upon demographic and cultural diversity.

Guiding Principles for Good Practice

Working relationships between faculty, staff, and students are an important component of graduate education at Penn State. The quality of these relationships can make or break the graduate school experience. The development of a positive learning environment depends on a shared vision of educational values, objectives and expectations. It is the joint responsibility of faculty, staff, and students to work together to nurture this vision, and to encourage freedom of inquiry, demonstrate personal and professional integrity, and insure a climate of mutual respect.

Joint M.D.-Ph.D. student wins international prize, honored during weeklong ceremony in Stockholm

Allison Cleary decided that she wanted to try something different, so the joint degree student who is working on an M.D. and a research doctorate (Ph.D.) in Cell and Molecular Biology at Penn State’s College of Medicine participated in a cancer lab rotation. Ultimately, the desire to expand her personal horizons placed Cleary squarely on a path to international acclaim as the 2015 Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists grand prize winner for her essay, “Teamwork: The Tumor Cell Edition.”
