Self Development for Personal and Professional Success
About the Course:
This course is about becoming more effective at identifying, defining, and achieving your personal and professional goals. Most academic courses excel at imparting knowledge in a particular domain, but very few directly focus on developing self-awareness and employing strategies that help people realize what they aim to do in life and purposefully embark upon that journey.
This course focuses on clearly defining your goals and creating action plans around them, as well as learning strategies and frameworks for tackling the common pitfalls that people face when trying to achieve what they set out to do.
This course carves out a time every week for you to join forces with your peers and critically think about the issues that you’re facing, as well as brainstorm (and sometimes role-play) solutions. Learning and brainstorming among your peers is ideal for self-development because peers often face similar dilemmas and can brainstorm and share potential solutions in a supportive environment.
Weekly sessions involve discussions of self-development topics and direct applications to students. The course is meant to be interactive, and the course facilitator will strive to improve the course through your feedback in an effort to make this your most positive and productive course.
All assignments will be written, with one presentation. There will be no exams. You will be expected to attend and actively participate in at least 11 of the 13 class sessions. If you add the class late, the classes you have missed will count against the 2 absences you are permitted for this course.

Enrollment in this class is on a first come first served basis. If you are interested, please come to the first session on Monday, August 29. Note that due to labor day holiday on Sept 5, the second session of the course is on Monday, September 12.
Update: The class has been moved to a larger roomll! That means that we now have space for additional members to join! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in joining. In the email, please confirm that you have read over the syllabus and let me know whether you will need a lower division (for freshman and sophomores) or an upper division (for juniors and seniors) course control number.
