Composition of Supervisory Committee

The membership of committees must meet the requirements of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and of the individual programs. Decisions about supervisory committee members are based on:

  • the collective experiences of the people involved
  • their ability to contribute to the intended study
  • their availability and willingness to serve

UBC has set policies regarding the composition and responsibilities of supervisory committees. Please review these thoroughly before deciding who to invite to your committee.
