Faculty Admissions : Graduate Studies Committees, Advisers, and Supervisors
i.
Regular membership is restricted to tenured and tenure track faculty members appointed at the University of Victoria. Membership will normally be granted for the length of the member’s academic appointment and with all supervisory privileges within their home Academic Units.
ii.
Associate membership is restricted to non-tenured or non-tenure-track teaching faculty, adjunct and limited term faculty, and sessional instructors appointed at the University of Victoria who wish to serve on supervisory committees or to supervise graduate students. Membership will normally be granted for the length of the member’s academic appointment to a maximum of 5 years, renewable as appropriate, and with only those privileges that the Academic Unit recommends and the Dean of Graduate Studies approves. Any faculty members, including Regular members of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, who wish to supervise students outside their home Academic Unit must apply for Associate membership through the outside unit. Regular members who have resigned their position at the University of Victoria (including Emeritus professors) who wish to continue to supervise or co-supervise graduate students must secure and maintain an Adjunct appointment to qualify for Associate membership.
iii.
Affiliate membership is intended for appropriately qualified individuals who do not hold academic appointments at the University of Victoria but wish to serve as an outside member on supervisory committees. Membership will normally be granted upon request of the Academic Unit, either for the duration of study of a particular student or, in the case where the individual may be asked to serve on several student committees, for a maximum of 5 years, renewable as appropriate, and with only those privileges that the unit recommends and the Dean of Graduate Studies approves. Affiliate members may not supervise or cosupervise graduate students. Regular Members who have resigned their position at the University of Victoria (including Emeritus professors) who wish to continue to serve on supervisory committees are eligible for Affiliate status.
