Academic Affairs Committee

Mandate and members

The Academic Affairs Committee's mandate is to ensure that graduate students and postdoctoral fellows enrolled in the Centre de recherche du CHU Sainte-Justine have optimal conditions for the success of their studies. The committee makes recommendations to the Research Directorate with regard to minimum student stipends, internship programs and scholarship competitions, the implementation of structuring events for recruitment, and student success. Committee members also act as resource persons for matters of ethics and integrity of research, conflicts of interest and harassment prevention.
