General Expectations Compact

The progress, development, and success of a graduate student centers on the commitment of both the Student and the Principal Investigator (PI) to contribute to their mutual relationship.

Basic principles of best practices in mentoring and graduate student life appear in this document. Graduate students should be aware of what is necessary for their success and their PI should be aware of practices that promote their Students’ best interests. This relationship should be a collaborative one in which there is open communication, teamwork, and respect.

Progress Improvement Plan (PIP)

This plan may be used if a student is not meeting meeting academic expectations. The form will be developed collaboratively with the student and PI to include a timeline of when improvements need to be made and specific steps/goals that the student must achieve by the end of the outlined timeline.
