How to obtain your supervisory privileges
Being a supervisor is a privilege. If you are not currently a supervisor but would like to become one
- Talk to the department head in your program and bring an up-to-date CV to the GPD. The GPD will then submit a recommendation form to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. If the dean of graduate studies approves the recommendation, an Appointment to Supervisory Status letter will be sent to you.
- Once you’ve received your appointment letter, you must attend a new supervisor workshop. Contact Kara Dowhaniuk (email@example.com) or phone 403-220-3056 for orientation dates.
Renewing your privileges
Your supervisory privileges need to be renewed every 5 years. You will fill out an application for Renewal of Supervisory Privileges which will be reviewed, alongside your supervisory record, by your GPD. You may need to meet with your graduate program director to discuss supervisory practices and learn more about the resources on campus to support your supervision.
Your Supervisory Record: You can request a report of all your supervisory activities through your home department’s Graduate Program Administrator. If your supervisory record is incomplete or incorrect, you can request changes.
