You will be required to complete a variety of activities that feed into each capability, but just like your 美高梅官方网站app liberal arts degree, 全球定位系统(GPS) is flexible and designed to serve your needs and interests, so everyone will have a slightly different path to complete their 全球定位系统(GPS) minimum involvement requirements.

All 美高梅官方网站app students have access to the 全球定位系统(GPS) path in 美高梅官方网站app参与. For information on how to access (and work on) the 全球定位系统(GPS) path, 点击这里. 全球定位系统(GPS)路径是动态的, you will be able to click through requirements, completing and submitting items that apply to you… and many of you will be surprised to find that you have already completed a number of requirements!

It is recommended that you take 30 minutes when you first access the 全球定位系统(GPS) Path to click through all of the requirements, 花点时间去理解每一个. From there, you should be able to develop a plan for how you intend to complete the 全球定位系统(全球定位系统(GPS))项目.

2. Attend Designing Your Narrative (DYN) Workshop

This design thinking workshop for seniors helps you connect the dots between your experiences at university and your post-graduation plans. We will talk about what comes next for you: a job or internship, 研究生院, 成立自己的公司, 等. We will walk through a series of exercises that will help you reflect on everything you've done at 美高梅官方网站app, 无论是在教室里还是外面. You will learn some strategies for how to 'pitch' yourself to prospective employers, 研究生院 admissions decision-makers, 投资者, 等... And you will be given the guidelines for how to translate all of this into your Personal Narrative - the third and final requirement for your successful completion of the 全球定位系统(全球定位系统(GPS))项目!

You will leave the workshop with the tools you need to be confident selling yourself to prospective employers, 研究生院 admissions decision-makers, 投资者, 等. - whoever your "audience" will be as you work towards your post-graduation goals.

3. 提交个人陈述

其中的一个 最困难的 tasks you will face after you graduate (or even just before) is marketing yourself. The objective of this exercise is to empower you to connect the dots between your curricular and co-curricular experiences in meaningful and compelling ways. The goal is to ensure that you have the foundation required to present yourself to anyone, 在任何地方, 带着骄傲和自信, enabling you to successfully tackle your post-graduation plans, 不管是什么.

For this Personal Narrative, you will identify a specific objective. 例如: 在迪奥(Dior)获得一份公关实习. Be accepted to the Master’s Program in Public Policy at Sciences Po. 为我的创业公司争取资金. Be awarded grant money to fund my research project. You will then craft a narrative imagining you are presenting yourself in the context of that objective – to an employer, 研究生院招生顾问, 天使投资人, 等. 叙述的形式是开放的, but common formats include 演示文稿/Prezi, video, 网站, 投资组合, 文章, 等. You will get all of the deatailed guidelines you need for this exercise when you attend the Designing Your Narrative workshop.

Were you a member of a student organization or club in the past and you want that experience to appear on your CCR and count for 全球定位系统(GPS) credit? Perhaps you participated in some other activity (such as organizing an event, 校友职业指导计划, 等.)你想出现在CCR上?

The 全球定位系统(GPS) team has made significant efforts to load as much retroactive information as possible onto your profile in 美高梅官方网站app参与. Make sure you take some time to thoroughly 看看 your progress through your 全球定位系统(GPS) Path and your CCR first. Once you’ve done so, there will likely be some things you wish to add.

The 美高梅官方网站app参与 platform tracks three types of information, (1)组织成员, (2)报道的经验, (3)事件.

1. 组织成员

的跟踪 美高梅官方网站app参与的组织成员资格 包括你的俱乐部会员资格, 运动队, 娱乐活动俱乐部, 委员会, 学生会, 弧/辅导, ASM董事会, 等. 因为美高梅官方网站app参与是美高梅官方网站app的一个新工具, 2019年春季推出, your memberships before Spring 2019 may or may not have been tracked in your 美高梅官方网站app参与 profile. 如果你是一个组织的成员, 或担任领导角色, and that information is not reflected on your CCR, the 全球定位系统(GPS) team offers you a process to declare that information and, 以其验证为准, 是否已经添加到CCR中, 当可适用, 接收全球定位系统(GPS)信贷.

To declare retroactive organization membership/leadership: 提交此网页表格.

NOTE: You must submit the web form one time for each individual membership/leadership role that you wish to declare. 在您提交web表单之后, the 全球定位系统(GPS) team will work to validate your declaration, 一旦验证, the organization membership/leadership role will be added to your CCR and, 如果适用的话, 你将获得全球定位系统(GPS)积分. You will not be notified when your declaration is validated (so be sure to check back on your CCR & 全球定位系统(GPS)路径定期), however you will be contacted if the 全球定位系统(GPS) team requires more information or is unable to validate your declaration.

2. 报道经验

You can submit and track reported experiences through the 全球定位系统(GPS) path (as explained in 您的全球定位系统(GPS)路径在美高梅官方网站app交战) and via the Reported Experience tool on 美高梅官方网站app参与 (as explained in 你在美高梅官方网站app参与中的CCR).

NOTE: Be sure to 看看 the list of Reported Experience categories in the 您的CCR在美高梅官方网站app参与页面. The categories will give you a clear understanding of the types of activities that can count as Reported Experiences.

3. 出席活动

的跟踪 event attendance in 美高梅官方网站app参与 also began in Spring 2019 (with some exceptions for some 全球定位系统(GPS) events in Fall 2018). In order for your attendance at an event to be tracked in 美高梅官方网站app参与, that specific event must actually exist in 美高梅官方网站app参与. This means that (with extremely few exceptions) events that took place before Spring 2019 will not be trackable in 美高梅官方网站app参与, and thus will not be able to be added to your CCR.
