Dissertation Guidelines    
Chair:
  • You are responsible for giving timely feedback to the student on their questions and their drafts. The respectful time is two weeks' turn-around.
  • To allow this to happen, ask the student to give you an overview of their dissertation (2-3 pages) so that you can discuss the larger flow.
  • Ask the student to give you parts of their dissertation so you can give it due attention.
  • You are not the copy editor of the student’s dissertation. In the very beginning, identify any writing deficiencies and have the student address those.
Other committee members:
  • You are responsible for giving timely feedback to the student on their questions and their drafts. The respectful time is two-weeks turn around.
  • The chair should have gone through the document first, so the draft that you see should be of high quality.
