The Supervisor-Student Relationship
According to the University of Saskatchewan's College of Graduate Studies and Research, "The relationship between a supervisor and a student should be a productive working relationship that, in its culmination, transforms into a relationship between colleagues. While the student is not employed by the supervisor, the relationship between a student and supervisor is unique and potentially complicated by the obligations of a student to achieve the research objectives of their program and the financial dependency of the student on the supervisor."
CGSR has compiled a list of common issues and questions that should be resolved early in the student-supervisor relationship.
