Clarifying Expectations in Graduate Supervision (GPS 409)


McLennan Library Building 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C9, CA

Imagine preventing common mistakes and avoiding confusion when taking on new graduate students. Clarifying Expectations is about articulating roles and responsibilities in supervisory relationships before problems or miscommunications occur.

In this workshop, we will discuss existing supervisory agreements, work together to set the goals and outcomes, and focus on writing an agreement that suits your needs.


  • Develop with your student a mutual understanding  of the supervisory relationship
  • Create a structure for your students’ progress through the program
  • Create a written agreement that makes explicit the expectations within the supervisory relationship
