Annual Evaluation of Students’ Academic and Professional Performance

At the beginning of the Spring semester, each graduate student’s academic performance is evaluated by the entire MSW faculty at the "Student Evaluation Meeting." Faculty members will review the student’s grade reports, field practicum evaluation forms, and all other pertinent information in this evaluation process. The purpose of this meeting is to provide empowering evaluative feedback to MSW students on their observed strengths, their growth while in the MSW program, areas for future academic and professional growth. Upon receiving this input from the MSW faculty, students are given the opportunity to ask questions or share comments regarding their academic performance, professional growth and areas for future growth and development. The outcome of the meeting is drawn up on the "Student Evaluation Form" and is signed by all attending MSW faculty members and the MSW student. The student has the right to follow grievance procedures if s/he believes the information contained on the "Student Evaluation Form" is inaccurate. The form is maintained in the student’s permanent student file.
