GUIDELINES

SUPERVISORY COMMITTEE

 



Guidelines for Chairs of Supervisory Committees

The chair represents the Graduate Program of Neuroscience on the supervisory committee, and serves the functions of monitoring, mentoring and reporting. The chair may ask the student questions and offer advice, but is primarily responsible for ensuring that the student is being supervised adequately and fairly. If the chair has any concerns in this regard, they should be communicated immediately to the Graduate Program in Neuroscience.

The following are to be construed as general guidelines for conduct of a supervisory committee meeting; chairs are given considerable latitude to alter this format as they see fit. Please note that these guidelines are evolving, and your input on them is welcome.

The chair calls the meeting to order, and will normally ask the supervisor to make a brief assessment of progress to date. Next, the student is asked to make a brief presentation, and then general discussion of progress ensues. At the termination of the meeting, the chair completes (with the input of the supervisory committee) and signs the attached checklist, and asks the supervisor to co-sign. Assuming that progress is satisfactory, no further action must be taken until the next supervisory committee meeting. If any problems have arisen in the progress of the student, the chair directs either the student or the supervisor to address these issues in writing to the Chair of the Graduate Program and all members of the supervisory committee, and includes a note at the bottom of the form indicating that such a document will be forthcoming.
