The PhD supervisory committee of students in the Institute of Islamic Studies (IIS) will consist of a supervisor (or two co-supervisors) and one additional faculty member, who is a member or associate member of the IIS. This additional committee member meets with the student on a regular basis to provide guidance and constructive feedback on the student’s research. The selection of this additional committee member is done with the mutual agreement of the student, the supervisor(s), and the GPD.
Each year, students are required by Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS) to fill out the mandatory Progress Tracking Reports, which are available for download on the GPS’ website. The complete and signed forms are due by May 30.
You should meet with your supervisor to have her/him review your objectives (Form 1) and accomplishments (Form 2), and to evaluate your work from the previous year (Form 3). Your supervisor must write her/his comments on Form 3, and you can sign the form if you agree. Once completed, these forms should be returned to the Student Affairs Coordinator so that the GPD could sign them and subsequently be placed in your student folder.
