The Graduate Roadmap: Leveraging Individual Development Plans in Academic Career Planning

Fridays, February 5, 12, and 19 2-3 p.m. ET


Walk through the process of developing an Individual Development Plan and applying it to your academic career in this three-part workshop. In our first session, you will get an introduction to the Individual Development Plan (IDP) process, learn about tools available to help guide you through IDP development, and have a chance to reflect on your own values, skills, and interests. In our second session, you will be able to develop strategies for exploring and experimenting with different professional pathways. In our third and final session, you will start the work of creating your IDP, identifying goals over the next year, how you intend to achieve them, and how to involve mentors in your plans. By the end of this three-part workshop, you will have a solid foundation for an IDP that you can continue to refine and build upon.




Transforming the Student Experience through Inclusive and Equitable Advising Practices

Thursday, February 18 1-2:30 p.m. ET


Academic advising is a critical role that many faculty and staff have. For many students, quality advising is a major factor contributing to their success, retention, and degree completion. Unfortunately, students of color, especially those majoring in STEM disciplines, are often not afforded quality advising experiences, because faculty and staff have not been trained in inclusive and equitable advising practices. Simply put, the degree to which faculty and staff can advise students in ways that are inclusive and equitable can do much to transform students’ experiences and broaden participation of students of color in STEM. In this session, participants will increase their knowledge and learn strategies that will enable them to advise in ways that are more inclusive and equitable.
