Graduate Annual Committee Review Process
Students are required to convene their committees annually wherein the student’s progress is discussed and the Annual Committee Form (see appendix “B”) is completed jointly. Written faculty feedback is given to the student and progress is either deemed satisfactory, unsatisfactory, or specific concerns are outlined.
Students entering their second year should form their dissertation committee before the end of the fall quarter and call a committee meeting by that time. Only ESS committee members are required to attend the first meeting. The purpose of the first meeting is to make sure the students get input from the committee before they prepare for their advancement exam by the end of the 2nd year.
