The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences requires all graduate students to meeting with their advisory committee and complete the Annual Committee Planning Report by June 1 each year. The purpose of this report is to assess students annually and provide feedback on their program. The department believes annual advisory committee meetings increase student success, decrease time to degree, promote publications, and address other potential deficiencies. Departmental goals, such as to increase student publications and effective communication before graduation, can best be achieved through the guidance and encouragement of each student’s faculty mentor and advisory committee. The report must be completed online by the committee chair. Once complete, the submission will be emailed to the committee chair for final approval.
