Members of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (formerly known as the Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology) want to ensure the successful completion of the selected graduate program by all students who are enrolled. In an effort to support each student's success in our program(s), the staff will conduct informal students reviews at the end of each term. The reviews will serve as a means to identify potential areas where a student may require additional support. The reviews will be conducted as part of a scheduled Department meeting to be held on strategic dates across the academic year. The calendar below provides a listing of these meeting dates.
Summary of Informal Student Review Meetings
Fall Term: January department meeting.
Winter Term: May department meeting.
Spring Summer Terms: September department meeting.
Only if there are concerns about: (a) academic performance, (b) clinical performance, (c) professional performance (to include student codes of conduct), or (d) any combination of performance issues, raised by any member of the staff, will a student be discussed. The principles of ethics and confidentiality will be maintained at all times by all staff members.
The student will be contacted directly and the appropriate action taken.
