myIDP is required for re-enrollment for all chemistry graduate students, each year. It will be a documentation of personal growth of laboratory and job skills, and enable the conversation between the research advisor and the graduate student each year. This is required by the NIH and NSF to show that the department is mentoring graduate students and helping them develop the skills they need to be successful in the current job environment.

All graduate students in chemistry must complete the questionnaire each year to be re-enrolled.

AAAS hosts the website for myIDP: Students must create a logon to access the questionnaire. In the Implement Plan section click on “myIDP Summary” and then “Print myIDP,” leave all sections of the summary visible. Click on “Show Report” at the bottom of the screen. Save your report as a .pdf to be uploaded to your reenrollment application.
