Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

The assignment supervisors play a central role in guiding and supporting students through their assignments by providing subject knowledge and direction. 

Assignment supervisors – all of whom have direct experience of working to implement sustainability responses – are drawn from industry, academia and civil society. They support students in their individual assignments and the group project during the continuous route. Supervisors serve as assessors for assignments and provide constructive feedback to students. They may also deliver workshop sessions in their areas of expertise and facilitate group discussions. 

Biographies for some of our most recent supervisors can be found below. Supervisors may change for future cohorts. In year 2 of the continuous route students will work with a different dissertation supervisor.
