  • If there is a supervisor and co-supervisor, at least two additional faculty members are required.
  • The committee may include faculty members from other graduate programs.
  • It may include qualified non-faculty members or faculty external to UBC upon approval of the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies.
  • The majority of the committee must be faculty members at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
