student’s supervisory committee research

 add additional information that you believed helped you to understand the supervisory committee :

This is my classmate post:


Walden doctoral study supervisory committees are generally composed of three members.  The DHA program directors, or their designee, will assign the first two committee members to the student’s supervisory committee for their research study (Walden University Office of Research and Doctoral Services, n.d.).

The first is the Committee Chair, who is allocated once the student has successfully completed DDHA 8246, which includes a completed draft of their prospectus form that has been authorized. Each term, the Committee Chair is charged with working with the student in a Blackboard course environment and assisting the student in developing a term plan to ensure the student is moving toward graduation.

The Committee Chair is also responsible for reviewing students’ accomplishment of term plan goals in each term leading up to graduation. The Committee Chair is also responsible for coordinating contact with the other committee members in order to avoid misunderstanding and arrange proposed adjustments to the research project.

The committee chair is largely responsible for ensuring that your doctorate study complies with all Walden University criteria, including those for topic coverage, methodology, research ethics, and form and style. The chair is also in charge of ensuring that the committee’s work successfully meets the standards of both services to the student and service to the academic discipline and professional area of practice concerned.

The chair guides the committee as it collaborates with the student on their doctoral research and serves as an arbitrator to settle any disagreements within the committee (Walden University Office of Research and Doctoral Services, n.d.).

A next committee member is a person who is entrusted with reviewing student work and providing input at the Committee Chair’s request. This committee member will also work with the student throughout their doctoral research project, guiding them through the proposal, research and analysis, and final oral conference.

The committee member’s competence may be mainly as a technical expert, primarily as a content expert, or a mix of the two. The committee member will assist the committee chair by bringing his or her particular experience and any specific knowledge to the student’s doctoral research. Before starting to work with a student, a committee member must consult with the committee chair (Walden University Office of Research and Doctoral Services, n.d.).

The third committee member is the University Research Reviewer (URR), who acts as a quality assurance member. The URR gives comprehensive input on the research design and alignment of the students’ research projects. When the student’s research project is about to be approved, the URR steps in to begin their responsibilities on the committee.

The URL’s particular responsibilities include consulting with the student’s supervisory committee on their proposal and doctorate study, as well as doing final evaluations of the student’s proposal and doctoral study prior to the student moving to the two oral conferences. Students seldom have direct interactions with the URR (Walden University Office of Research and Doctoral Services, n.d.).
