Your Capstone committee has two primary responsibilities. One is to ensure that your Capstone meets academic and scholarly standards as defined by University and the academic field. The other is to mentor you throughout the Capstone process. Those who serve on your dissertation committee can provide valuable insight into how to structure and perform your CAPSTONE research. Thus, it is important to understand their roles and responsibilities.
