Individual Development Plans (IDP)

Individual Development Plan (IDP) Meeting


McNair Scholars are required a schedule a meeting with McNair Professional staff in which their individual Development Plan is reviewed once a semester. The objective of the IDP meeting is to create an opportunity for McNair Scholars and McNair Professional Staff to assess Scholar progress to their short-term, immediate, and long-range professional, personal, and career goals.

To ensure a productive IDP meeting, a Semester IDP form is required as well as a monthly IDP form placed in your portfolio folder. This form records the personal, academic, and professional goals of McNair Scholars each semester/month. The Pre-IDP Form must be completed at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
