On-Site Supervisor Agreement

On-Site Supervisor Agreement

If a professional project is to be supervised by someone who is not a regular member of the Missouri School of Journalism faculty, the proposal must include a signed, written agreement by the on-site supervisor. The agreement must specify how you will be supervised and outline your responsibilities. The supervisor must agree to comply with the professional project regulations. You must provide a copy of the supervisor’s resume.

The proposal also must include the name of a project committee member who has accepted responsibility for coordination with the on-site supervisor. Usually, this is the committee chair. The faculty coordinator is expected to maintain regular contact with you and the on-site supervisor during the course of the project. You are required to send weekly field notes to your committee. These notes should summarize your activities, reflect on what you’re learning, and report any problems.

In the case of individual projects, at the conclusion of the project, your on-site supervisor must submit a written evaluation of your work. This evaluation is directed to your committee chair. It will be shared with your committee and included in your permanent file. If you desire, you may include it in your final project report.
