How do we go about finding and securing the External Appraiser?
Your supervisor, with input from the Supervisory committee, must find and secure the External Appraiser. The individual must be a Full or Associate Professor with tenure, who has had no prior working relationship with either your supervisor or yourself. When your supervisor receives confirmation from the External Appraiser, they need to request an electronic copy of their CV, and ascertain whether or not they will be attending in person or by teleconference. The CV must be forwarded to Angela Umbrello by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org who will forward it to SGS for their approval. If SGS does not approve the individual, your supervisor will work with you and your supervisory committee to come up with a new person.
