  • The Human Services program regularly collects agency/supervisor feedback for students in the community completing practicum field experiences through online surveys. The feedback results are available upon request.
  • Faculty ratings by students have transitioned from a quantitative method to a qualitative evaluation therefore traditional number ratings are no longer collected. Qualitative narratives of student ratings of faculty members are available upon request.
  • The Human Services department utilizes an advisory committee in a variety of ways to enhance the overall programming offered to students. The committee meets once per semester (typically in fall and in spring terms) and includes both internal and external representation. Members represent a cross section of public and private sector agencies in the community in disciplines relevant to human services. The Human Services advisory committee assists the program by providing information about current community needs and trends so that curricular and/or program changes can be implemented to address those needs and trends.
