Thank you for your participation and for agreeing to serve on the review committee for a student's dissertation or thesis. CGU depends upon your valuable expertise in reviewing student work and in assessing whether the manuscript or accomplishment meets the professional standards of your field. Your interaction on the review committee and personal guidance of your student is a contribution not only to the development of the student, but to your field and profession as well.
While the department/program may provide separate instructions, this page contains information about CGU expectations and provides links to information you may find helpful as a committee chair or member.
The Committee determines its own process for the review of work submitted by a student.
Distribution of manuscripts.Student procedures direct students to submit electronic (pdf) versions of their work to you and to schedule a defense date through the department.
In its commitment to environmentally-friendly processes, CGU requests that if you require a printed version of a dissertation or thesis, you print one upon receipt of the student's pdf.
Defense (Oral Exam). The student's defense, also formerly referred to as an oral exam, is an opportunity for the student to publicly demonstrate expertise in the subject of the dissertation or thesis. Please make every effort to be present for this event. Committee members who cannot be physically present may participate via audio or teleconference.
