Supervisory Committees

Before the beginning of their first semester, new students meet with the faculty to discuss their long-term academic plans, establish a course plan for the year, and to formulate the composition of their future supervisory committee.

Committees will generally consist of three members and must have at least one ISAW faculty member who will serve as the student's advisor.  The committee may change according to adjustments to the student’s course of study.

First-year students will meet with their committees again at the end of the fall and spring semesters.

Continuing students normally meet with their committees once per year at the end of the spring semester.
