What is FLDP?
FLDP, or the Fox Leadership Development Program, is a co-curricular engagement program designed to help you find and participate in activities on campus, throughout Philadelphia, and beyond! FLDP is hosted through Suitable, an app and website that helps you track your progress through the program. You will use Suitable to check in at events using the QR code reader built into the app. Any time you scan into an event your attendance is recorded and points are added to your account automatically. You can check your Suitable account to see your lifetime total points and check your TU inbox for weekly FLDP Point Reports to see your year-to-date points. FLDP renews each year, so even if you earned over 250 points in a previous year, you need to earn 250 new points. This year, the program will run from August 23, 2019 – August 23, 2020, so anything you do over the summer will count toward the 2019-2020 school year.
Am I required to participate?
Any student with 89 or less overall earned hours by Monday, September 9, 2019 is required to earn 250 total points, with at least 20 points in each of the five competencies. See the chart below for a list of competencies.
How do I sign up?
First, head over to the app store on your mobile device and download the Suitable app. Once downloaded, enter your TU email (ex. email@example.com), select your major and any organizations you are involved in, and complete your first activity by finishing your sign-up process. You can also register on the desktop site at www.suitable.co.
How do I earn points?
Check out the Activities tab in Suitable. This tab displays all upcoming point-worthy activities. Each activity lists event details as well as a Level and Competency label. The Level and number of Competencies determines how many points an activity is worth; check out the chart below for point totals.
|Points (per competency)||10||20||50||75|
Use the search bar in the Activities tab to look for events by name, Competency, or keyword. You can also use the search bar to find the Self-Reporting activities. These activities allow you to earn credit for things you do off campus. To earn credit you will need click the circle on the left side of the activity and follow the instructions. Some activities require a file submission and other require a reflection – instructions will be clearly marked. Refer to this chart to see all the activities you can self-report. Just search the name of the activity and complete the reflection; credit is added to your account when the reflection is approved.
