Grounded in the core theme of educating for student success, Individual Development Plans intend to guide graduate and postdoctoral students in their professional development and career planning.
Graduate students and post-doctoral researchers supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are required to develop Individual Development Plans (IDP). Required progress reports submitted to the NIH must include a copy of the University’s IDP policy, a description of whether the university uses IDPs, and how IDPs are used to assist in the career development of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers supported by NIH.
Pacific University encourages graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to create and use IDPs to formulate academic and career goals and facilitate conversations with faculty advisors and mentors. All graduate students and postdoctoral researchers supported by NIH funding are required to have an IDP. The Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects offers graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty advisors and mentors information on IDP resources, including templates and online resources.
