Each doctoral student will begin developing a dossier from the first semester in the program. This dossier will be structured along the lines of a promotion and tenure document, although it will be used specifically as a vehicle for planning professional development and for assessment of progress. The dossier will be reviewed three times during a students’ program.
- 1st review – conducted after R711, R690 and when taking their second R695: developmental review conducted by the students’ program advisory committee.
- 2nd review – conducted during their fourth R695 seminar: public review of dossier conducted by the entire IST faculty with all R695 students in attendance.
- 3rd review – conducted after completion of R795 Proposal Preparation by student’s research committee.
