While serving as President, Porter was involved in the planning for the campus-wide Task Force on the Status of Women. She served as chair of the committee, whose work resulted in the formation of the IUPUI Office for Women. Porter also helped to write a strategic initiatives grant that initially funded the new office.
Porter has received numerous awards, including the Frances Ekstam Outstanding Leadership Award of the Indiana Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Lucy Blair Service Award of the American Physical Therapy Association.
