The TSP meets three times each Academic Year. Generally, meetings are held in Fall (usually October), Winter (usually February/March), and Summer (usually June). PhD students who wish to present to the TSP will be given priority over Masters students. PhD students are encouraged to complete the Comprehensive Examination prior to presenting to the TSP.
A call for proposals is distributed to all students prior to the meetings. Proposal submissions must include a signed coversheet, complete proposal, and completed checklist. Presentation dates are scheduled after all proposals are received.

At the meeting, the student gives a brief (10-12 minute) oral presentation and responds to questions from the TSP. The student’s supervisor is expected to attend the meeting and other supervisory committee members are also encouraged to attend. The role of the supervisor and committee members is to observe the meeting. The TSP provides written feedback to students and their supervisors after the meeting.
