Policy on Responsibilities of Advisors, Advisory Committees and Graduate Students and Graduate Student-Advisor Mediation Procedures

This is the official policy of the University of Guelph approved in principle by the University Senate on January 15, 1991, and revised and reprinted annually thereafter. The request for a policy originated in the Board of Governors Committee on Student Rights and Responsibilities. The policy was developed by faculty/student committees of the Board of Graduate Studies in consultation with the departments and schools and with the university's solicitors. Mediation procedures for the resolution of disputes arising from disagreements in interpretation of the policy are included.
