Pamela Felder -- Author and Educator

Testimonials

“Working with Dr. Felder on publications related to doctoral student socialization and #BlackDocsMatter initiatives has been a double-edged educational experience by gaining a better understanding of the publication process through her guidance and the generalized experiences of other doctoral students through our scholarly efforts. She is very collegial and dedicated to the success of students in and out of her home academic department. I look forward to working and learning with her in the future.”

“Pamela was the first faculty member to reach out to me and provide me with an opportunity to work with her on a publication. She was always open to hearing my ideas and worked me as if I was a colleague, although I was just starting my doctoral studies. I admire the effort she puts into helping doctoral students develop the skills and experiences necessary to be successful in the field of higher education. She is also a scholar who thinks outside of the box. She showed me that it was important to stay open minded to innovation.”

“Dr. Felder served as my advisor for the Masters in Higher Education program at Penn. She also taught the year-long Professional Development course. During my time at Penn, I noticed that Dr. Felder displayed a keen awareness and responsibility towards the diversity of the graduate student experience. She instinctively deconstructs the varying backgrounds, differences, and similarities amongst a class and cohort, and works tirelessly to facilitate compelling dialogue. As an advisor, Dr. Felder is consistently open and willing to discuss any concerns. Graduate students in education should always feel welcomed in her office.”
