Marquette Hall

An Individual Development Plan is a holistic and interactive document that provides graduate students awareness of their particular skills, as well as their personality strengths and challenges in relation to their graduate career at Marquette.  It goes beyond regular advising, insofar as it asks students to reflect seriously about their personal goals, and whether the training they are engaged in is a good fit for their ambitions.  Individual students take initial responsibility for drafting the IDP, and the faculty advisor/mentor is expected to have a candid face-to-face discussion at least once a year. 










Future Faculty


Sponsored by the Graduate School, the PFFP program provides development opportunities for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and alumni. The aim of the program is to help prepare participants for a successful career in higher education and professional positions, with emphasis on developing skills to teach effectively and preparation to navigate the initial stages of an academic job search.
