Annual Committee Meeting

After successfully passing the oral exam, the student and advisor should select a research advisory committee consisting of at least two other members of the PIB faculty plus one individual familiar with the student's field of research from outside the Program, preferably from outside the institution. The membership of the committee must be approved by the Director of the graduate program. The student's research advisor will serve as chair of this committee, and will be responsible for calling meetings of the committee.

This committee should meet to review the student's progress at least once a year and submit an Annual Research Advisory Committee Meeting form to the PIB Graduate Program Academic Standing Committee. Additional meetings can be called by the student as necessary.
