Ms Levitt: Thank you for your note. The committee is indeed concerned with
student issues (and indeed has two student members) but its mandate is to
look into governance only in the Faculty of Arts. You propose a role for
Chairs (and therefore fall well within the committee's mandate) but I am
uncertain whether such a role ought not more properly to belong to the
Director of the Graduate Programme. Nevertheless, the committee members
will, I am sure, review your note with interest, and if we can legitimately
propose anything to improve the system of supervision, we'll propose it.
Regards, Bob Drummond
