Annual Committee Meeting
The student is responsible for scheduling the first meeting with his/her Special Committee 3 months after successfully passing the ACE examination and he/she must have at least one meeting per year after that in order to remain in good academic standing. The student should prepare an outline according to our guidelines (click on the link at the right) or write a 2 page description of their research in advance to their committee meeting, which MUST be distributed to their committee by email the day prior to the scheduled meeting. This should include goals, hypotheses and progress to date. At the annual committee meetings, the student will present the work they have accomplished and the work they are currently pursuing, and a plan for their future research will be discussed and agreed upon.
