Course and Instructor Evaluations

The Course and Instructor Evaluation process is vital to the growth of the university.  The evaluations provide valuable information to faculty and administrators regarding the quality of courses offered. Evaluations give students an opportunity to reflect on the semester, and professors use the information to make changes to course delivery methods, textbook adoptions, frequency of course offerings, etc.

Evaluations are completed near the end of the semester and are completely ANONYMOUS.
