Individual Development Plans (IDPs)

Every BGS PhD and combined degree student is required to complete an Individual Development Plan (IDP) on an annual basis. An IDP is intended to help in the design of, and measurement of progress in, training. It is also intended to help in identifying short- and long-term objectives and relevant development activities. Each student should use the IDP that aligns with his or her progress in the PhD program and status as a PhD or combined degree student. The IDP is due August 1 of each year; however, any graduate group may employ a due date earlier than this, for example to maintain consistency with its advising schedule.

IDPs for all students except those in GGEB:
