CGPS Membership

Membership in the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (CGPS) is held for the purposes of furthering the education of graduate students at the University of Saskatchewan and/or the enhancement of research, scholarly or artistic work at the institution.

Members establish and approve policies governing the activities of the CGPS and its students, approve modifications to existing programs, and recommend the establishment of new programs.

Nominate CGPS Faculty Members

Academic units are invited to nominate for membership in the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Attach an up-to-date CV.

In the Spring, academic units receive a list of current Faculty members whose membership is about to expire. Academic units can recommend those who meet the criteria for renewal by a simple indication on this notice.

To ensure MD faculty with active research programs continue to be able to work with graduate students CGPS was approved in September 2016 to grant MD Faculty membership to those individuals holding MD faculty appointments with the University of Saskatchewan.

Adjunct Professors

Academic units may recommend as Adjunct Professors individuals who are not members of the academic staff of this University whose knowledge, expertise and skills will contribute to the units' research and teaching functions respecting graduate students.

Adjunct Professors are members of the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and are eligible to supervise graduate students and teach graduate classes.

Professional Affiliates

Professional Affiliates shall not be members in the CGPS Faculty and they shall serve without additional salary from the University.

Professional Affiliates cannot be Research Supervisors, although they are eligible to serve on graduate student Advisory and Examining Committees and to give graduate courses when their qualifications are appropriate.

Academic units may recommend individuals as Professional Affiliates who are not employed as faculty members by the University, but whom they wish to have associated with their research, graduate teaching, or professional service program. Nominees are not required to meet criteria equivalent to that required for a tenured faculty position
