### 7.6. The \signaturepage command

Place a \signaturepage command just before the \end{document} that ends your file. Each member of your committee must sign this page to certify they are satisfied with your work.

• The text “This dissertation is accepted on behalf of the faculty of the Institute by the following committee:”

• A signature line for your committee chair, with the name from your \chair command in the preamble.

• Additional signature lines for the rest of your committee members. The total number of signature lines comes from your \committeesize preamble command. For example, if you used \committeesize{4}, there will be three additional signature lines after the one for your chair.

• At the bottom of the page is another signature line for you to sign and date the thesis.
