Personal Development Planning (PDP) is a process which will enable first year students at IUPUI to understand, implement, and mark progress towards a degree and a career goal by creating and following a personalized plan that is open to revision and reevaluation every semester in collaboration with an academic advisor. These plans have three components:
- Semester in Review: Reflect on individual strengths, long term goals, challenges faced during the first semester, and IUPUI resources utilized.
- Principles of Undergraduate Learning: Identify how IUPUI's learning outcomes (PUL's) are connected to personalized academic and experiential goals.
- Peak Performance Plan: Outline specific action steps, courses, and extracurricular activities targeted for the undergraduate experience.
