Before a student or group can receive SIF funding, they must have a project supervisor. A SIF project supervisor is/must be a Ryerson Faculty or a full-time staff member, who is there to offer general advice regarding the planning process and the financial side of things. Thank you for taking on this responsibility and helping.

Before a student or group will be given a presentation slot, we must receive email confirmation from their project supervisor of acceptance. If your name has been attached to a SIF project, but you didn’t agree to be the project’s supervisor, please contact us at sif@ryerson.ca immediately.

Below are certain expectations all project supervisors are to uphold:

 

General:
  • You will offer general advice to the students regarding their project.

  • You will ensure the students follow the Official SIF Policies, as they apply to the project.

  • You will sign a copy of the project’s Final Report.

Ensure the project acknowledges SIF support by including our logo in marketing materials.

Deadlines:
  • You will ensure the students submit their final report/budget by the deadlines outlined by SIF.

  • You will ensure the students submit financial paperwork by the deadlines outlined by Financial Services and the SIF Administrators.

Financial:
  • You will help the students set-up and monitor a proper budget. (SIF Budget Template.)

  • You will complete all financial processes for the initiative

Deficits:
  • You are responsible for any deficits incurred by the project, due to overspending out of the SIF cost-centre.

  • If the project overspends out of its SIF cost-centre, the project supervisor is responsible for repaying the difference (either by the student group or through the department’s cost-centre).
