Pathways and Mechanisms for General Feedback and Concerns

Students have many pathways and opportunities to address department programs and activities with representatives, course instructors, and department leadership. Students may choose the pathway that they deem the most appropriate for the circumstances for issues that arise. The department also conducts surveys, assessments, and evaluations that inform programs and curricula.

Regular department feedback for students is provided at the annual autumn orientation, the autumn State of the Department presentation and the spring cohort assessment overview.
