The student-supervisor relationship is a key contributor to a successful and satisfying graduate experience. To help foster a fulfilling supervisory relationship, the School of Graduate Studies has created student and faculty-specific supervision resources that outline the characteristics of graduate supervision, review the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders (e.g., supervisor, graduate student, supervisory committee), offer best practices for navigating challenges encountered throughout the graduate journey, and provide guidance for identifying and resolving potential issues. Resources for supporting mentorship and supervision at a distance are also available below.
